Tehran, July 20 - Hundreds of Iranians gathered here Saturday to protest against Israel's offensive against the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.

Raising anti-Israel slogans, the demonstrators blamed the West and the US for supporting the Zionists.

Today is the test day for us ... We should defend the oppressed Gazans, Xinhua quoted a university professor as saying while addressing hundreds of protesters in Tehran's Imam Hossein square.

Similar rallies have been held in Tehran during last few days to condemn the killing of innocent people by the Israeli army in Gaza.
