Iranians took to the streets today to denounce "the Zionist regime," screaming chants of "Death to Israel" and "Death to U.S.," according to reports in the Iranian media.

In Tehran, hundreds of thousands of marchers poured into the streets in celebration of International Quds Day, a dual holiday that marks the end to the holy month of Ramadan and commemorates Israel’s so-called "occupation" of Palestinian lands, according to Iran’s Mehr news agency.

Marchers decried the Jewish state while yelling "slogans against the Zionist regime of Israel and its main ally the United States," according to the report.

Senior Iranian officials, including anti-Semitic President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, attended marches. Others in attendance included "top Judiciary officials, cabinet ministers, ranking military commanders," the report states.

Grand ayatollahs are reported to have marched through the city of Qom—home to one of Iran’s clandestine uranium enrichment facilities—"to show solidarity with the Palestinian people."
