A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on July 23

Iran Newspaper front pages

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Saturday and picked headlines from 22 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

Many newspapers on Saturday covered the recent capture of terrorist elements in southeastern Iran, who had dug a tunnel to explode Iranian military sites.

Only three newspapers, Arman-e Emrooz, Etemad, and Shargh, managed to cover the late night shooting incident in Munich, Germany, in their second prints.

The Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s crackdown on his opponents also remained a top story.

Newspapers also covered the ongoing conflict between the Iranian government and the Armed Forces over the role of Police in controlling concerts. In an official order, the government said the Police should only control the traffic jam and have no right to interfere in the performances; however, the Armed Forces told the Police to continue its duties.

The above issues as well as many more are covered in the following headlines:
