A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on July 2

Iran Newspaper front pages

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Saturday and picked headlines from 21 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

Newspapers on Saturday covered the International Quds Day rallies held on Friday in Iran and other parts of the world in support of Palestine and its cause.

The dismissal and resignation of four bank managers also received great coverage. The issue of astronomical salaries and the measures taken by the government against the offenses has been a top story in the past weeks.

President Hassan Rouhani also met a group of Iranian artists and culture professionals. During the meeting, he voiced his government’s all-out support for Iranian artists, and lashed out at those who criticize filmmakers for attending international festivals.

These issues and many more are covered in the following headlines:
