Demonstrators attending an anti-Israeli protest for Quds Day in Iran, June 23, 2017.

"The displacement of millions of Muslims by the Zionist regime is unprecedented in the history of all terrorist groups", he said.

Some participants also carried placards with pictures of Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei and quotes about Jerusalem that are attributed to him.

On Friday, Iran's Revolutionary Guards displayed some of the same Zolfaghar missiles used in the strike in Valiasr Square in the heart of the capital, alongside a 2,000-kilometer (1,250-mile) range Qadr missile.

Trump says China has failed over North Korea
Bae was the longest-held US citizen in North Korea since the Korean War - first detained in 2012 and released two years later. US President Donald Trump blamed the "brutality of the North Korean regime " for Warmbier's death .

The struggle against the Zionist regime of Israel, remarked the maximum spiritual and political leader of the Persian nation, is also 'the fight against arrogance and imperialism, and that is why USA politicians consider it a hostile action.' Majlis (parliament) President Ali Larijani recalled that the great powers have long sought to discourage Muslim peoples and governments from backing the Palestinian issue by exhausting them and telling them that the cause has failed after decades.

Videos posted on social media showed a small group of hardline protesters chanting hostile slogans at Rouhani, including "down with liar" and "down with the American cleric". Iran has marked the day since the start of its 1979 Islamic Revolution, when the country cut relations with Israel.

One video showed Rouhani's security guards rushing him into his vehicle while others prevented protesters from approaching.

Iran blames regional rival Saudi Arabia for being behind the attacks but this is denied by Riyadh.

Other videos showed First Vice President Eshaq Jahangiri and outspoken MP Ali Motahari being heckled by angry protesters.

The anti-Israel rallies are an annual event marking al-Quds Day, a historic Arabic name for Jerusalem.

Protesters could also be seen burning the IS flag, after the terrorist group claimed responsibility for a deadly attack in the country's capital earlier this month.
