Gaza violence: Iranian scholars demand justice

This Friday, Iranians dedicated their protests and their prayers to the people of Palestine.

    Iran's President Hassan Rouhani attended the extraordinary summit of the OIC in Istanbul.

    He urged the Muslim bloc to unite in condemnation of Israel.

    Meanwhile, a senior scholar in Tehran spoke after Friday prayers, accusing Muslim leaders of not doing enough to support the Palestinian cause.
