On April 19, 2023, IRINN, an Iranian news channel belonging to the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting corporation, aired a report about an International Quds Day rally held in New York City on April 15. The channel's reporter interviewed rally-goers and reported from the crowd. He said that the chants of "free Palestine" at the rally are a "shout for freedom of Palestine and the condemnation of the Zionist regime's crimes." The report included an interview with an "anti-Zionist" Jew and a man holding a large Iranian flag.

Protesters: "Free, free Palestine!"

Reporter: "This is the shout for freedom of Palestine and the condemnation of the Zionist regime's crimes, which spread in the center of New York City on International Quds Day. In addition to Muslims, a number of anti-Zionist American Jews attended International Quds Day which took place in Manhattan, New York."

Protester 1: "The Jews worldwide and here in Manhattan... We have gathered here in Manhattan on Quds Day on behalf of the anti-Zionist Jews to show our condemnation for the atrocities of Israel and to declare that the Jewish religion does not condone, under any circumstances, the tyranny and oppression of Israel."

Reporter: "'Hands off the Al-Aqsa Mosque,' 'Jerusalem is the capital of Palestine,' and 'Hoping for the end of the occupation.' These are some of the handwritten messages that the people rallying today have in their hands."

Protester 2: "To support the Palestinian people against the apartheid regime of Israel is a duty of all of us."

Protester 3: "All of Israel's atrocities take place with the support of imperialism."

Protester 4: "We have the Iran flag because Iran is the leader of the fight against Israel and the main supporter of the Palestinians."

Reporter: "The speakers of the International Quds Day event in New York, in addition to emphasizing the importance of International Quds Day in keeping the Palestinian name and cause alive demanded a full cease of American comprehensive support for the Zionist regime."
