IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Thursday and picked headlines from 4 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.
In Iranian calendar this year, Monday and Wednesday, November 28 and 30, were religious holidays and newspapers were not published in these two days. Today, Thursday, is not a holiday, but since tomorrow, Friday, is the weekend holiday, a few number of newspapers have been published on Thursday. One of the reasons could be the financial problems many Iranian media are faced with; therefore, the majority of newspapers have tried to cut their expenses by allowing their personnel to go on leave and avoiding publishing costs on Thursday.
Headlines of only four major newspapers have been selected for today’s coverage of Iranian press. The main issue covered by these papers is the historic deal of Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), which is described by pro-government media and experts as a great victory. It is even praised as the oil JCPOA, the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, in a comparison with Iran’s nuclear deal with world powers.
The other top story today was the funeral ceremonies held for victims of an ISIS’ attack on pilgrims in Iraqi city of Hilla as well as the train collision in Iran’s Semnan province. A huge number of people and several officials took part in the ceremonies held in southwestern city of Ahvaz and northwestern city of Tabriz.
