TEHRAN (IQNA) –  The third international conference for solidarity with Palestinian children and youths will be held in Tehran on Thursday.



The International Union of Teenagers and Youths against Occupation will organize the event in cooperation with a number of other organizations and institutions.  

It will also commemorate young Palestinian martyr Muhammad al-Durrah.

A number of political and cultural personalities as well as youths from Iran, Palestine, Syria, Yemen, Nigeria, Tajikistan, Turkey, Afghanistan, Brazil, Trinidad and Tobago, Malaysia, Peru, Chile, Sri Lanka and India will take part in the conference.

A message from senior officials of the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas will be read out at the event.

Muhammad al-Durrah was killed in the Gaza Strip on September 30, 2000, on the second day of the Second Intifada. Jamal al-Durrah and his 12-year-old son, Muhammad, were filmed by Talal Abu Rahma, a Palestinian cameraman freelancing for France 2, as Israeli forces fired bullets at them. The footage shows the pair crouching behind a concrete cylinder, the boy crying and the father waving, then a burst of gunfire and dust, after which the boy is seen slumped across his father's legs.
