IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Wednesday, July 5, and picked headlines from 12 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.
Iranian newspapers today widely covered the remarks made by Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari, the commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), and IRGC Quds Force Commander Major General Qassemi Soleimani about the significance of the military organization’s efforts to ensure Iran’s security.
The reactions to a huge gas deal signed between Iran and France’s Total also received great coverage today. Conservative papers strongly denounced it as being against the country’s interests, while reformists and pro-government media hailed it as a historic deal that breaks the wall of sanctions.
Many papers also marked the first anniversary of the demise of prominent Iranian filmmaker and photographer Abbas Kiarostami.
