A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on February 18

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Saturday and picked headlines from 27 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

Almost all newspapers today covered the ongoing climatic crises across Iran, including the flood in southern provinces and the heavy snow in northern Iran.

The dust pollution and its consequences in Khuzestan province were also widely covered by newspapers today.

Another top story was the world title claimed by Iran’s wrestling team, which defeated the US in the final match in Kermanshah, western Iran, to win the top position.

Newspapers also covered the ceremony held in commemoration of Ayatollah Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani in the 40th day after his demise.

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