A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on September 28

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Thursday, September 28, and picked headlines from 12 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

The top story in today’s newspapers was the glorious funeral ceremony held for martyr Mohsen Hojaji, the Iranian soldier who was beheaded by the ISIS terrorist group. Thousands of people including the Leader of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei attended the separate funerals held in Tehran and Isfahan on Wednesday.

Another top story was the alleged ambiguities in the nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers, particularly its Article T, as raised by the IAEA Chief Yukiya Amano.

The latest developments of Iraqi Kurdistan and Iran’s strong opposition to its independence also remained a top story. The Parliament’s statement against the Kurdish referendum and a visit by the Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Baqeri to Iraq were particularly highlighted in today’s papers.

The move by Saudi King Salman to allow women to drive and obtain driver’s licence also received great coverage today.
