Iran Newspaper front pages

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

Recent remarks by the Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei, on the need for establishment of an Islamic civilization and its features were widely covered by Iranian press on Tuesday.

The US confiscation of Iranian assets and the reactions are still a hot topic across all newspapers. The Iranian government has vowed to reclaim the money, and different factions are trying to pin the blame on each other.
