A look at Iranian newspaper front pages on Feb 10

Iran Newspaper front pages

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iran newspapers on Saturday and picked headlines from 18 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

Bahman 22 (February 11) is marked as the anniversary of the victory of the 1979 Islamic Revolution. Iranians celebrate the day by street rallies every year to show the world they as ever before support the revolution despite all the economic hardships they have been going through since they overthrew the Shah. All the papers on February 10, 2016 published headlines calling on the people to renew their allegiance to the revolution by participating in the national rallies on Thursday.

On Tuesday, Iranian Minister of Petroleum Bijan Zangeneh held a press conference in which he outlined the ongoing developments in the country’s energy sector. He answered many questions by the reporters about a range of issues including details of new model of oil contracts, known at Iran IPC, and the latest updates about the country’s major oil and gas projects. Iran is now developing the world’s biggest gas field in Persian Gulf waters which is said to contain 8% of the world’s gas reserves. Zangeneh’s answers to different queries by the reporters where highlighted by most papers on Wednesday.

Iran is also trying Babak Zanjani for a major oil scam. Recently a wave of calls has begun asking maximum punishment for the guy for disrupting the country’s economy under the sanctions. Many papers covered this in their front pages as well.
