A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on February 5

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Sunday and picked headlines from 19 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

The top story today was a US court ruling to suspend President Donald Trump’s visa ban on citizens of 7 Muslim-majority countries.

The fresh sanctions imposed by Trump’s administration on a number of Iranian individuals and companies, and Iran’s reaction to the move also received great coverage.

A number of newspapers also covered the remarks by an Iranian energy official about the revival of Iran’s controversial Crescent Deal with the United Arab Emirates. Iran is reportedly ready to export its natural gas to the Arab neighbouring country.

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