A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on February 19

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Monday, February 19, and picked headlines from 23 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

All newspapers today covered the tragic crash of the Aseman Airlines’ passenger plane, which has presumably claimed the lives of 65 people on board after crashing into the mountain on Sunday.

Also a top story was the remarks made by the Leader of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei about the Islamic Republic’s failure to realize justice over the past 39 years and the need for the country’s officials to apologize to people and God for it.

Several papers also highlighted the speech delivered by Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif at the Munich Security Conference, particularly his reaction to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s claims about Iran.

The above issues, as well as many more, are highlighted in the following headlines and top stories:
