IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Sunday, July 22, 2018, and picked headlines from 16 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.
The top story in all papers today was the Saturday remarks by the Leader of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei in a meeting with the Iranian foreign minister and the country’s ambassadors.
Also a top story was a vote by the Expediency Council which reaffirmed the religious minorities’ right to run for local elections and be elected to city and village councils. The vote allowed Sepanta Niknam, a Zoroastrian politician, to get back to his work in the City Council of Yazd after being suspended by the Guardian Council.
Several papers also covered a terrorist attack by PJAK militants on an Iranian border post in Marivan, western Iran, during which 11 IRGC forces were killed and several others wounded.
