A group of far-right supporters faced off with pro-Palestine supporters as they rallied in London, Sunday, on occasion of Al-Quds Day.

Footage shows supporters of the far-right English Defence League (EDL) trying to break the police cordon that surrounded the pro-Palestine rally.

Al-Quds day, which falls on the last Friday of the month of Ramadan, is an annual event firstly introduced in 1979 by late Supreme Leader of Iran Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, as a day of protest against Zionism and Israel’s control of Jerusalem.
