A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on January 1

A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on November 19

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Tuesday, January 1, 2019, and picked headlines from 13 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

The top story in all papers today was the remarks made by the Leader of Iran’s Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, about the Palestinian nation’s ultimate victory over the Israeli regime.

Several papers also covered a controversy over the Operation Karbala IV, a failed Iranian operation against Iraq in the eight-year war in the 1980s, which was recently described by then commander Mohsen Rezaei as an operation to deceive the enemy. The remarks were widely criticized, even by senior general Qassem Soleimani, and were finally taken back by Rezaei in a televised interview.

The Leader’s addition of Mohammad-Javad Ali-Akbari to the list of Tehran’s provisional Friday prayer imams also received great coverage. The appointment was hailed by some papers which described him as the youngest imam of Tehran.

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