Iran Newspaper front pages

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Thursday and picked headlines from 17 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

Most Iranian newspapers on Thursday covered the remarks by the Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, who called the US “the Greater Satan” and called on Muslim society to raise their power.

The ongoing visit of Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović to Tehran and her meetings with Iranian officials including President Hassan Rouhani and Chairman of Iran’s Expediency Council Ayatollah Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani were also a hot story in today’s media.
