Most Iranian newspapers on Thursday covered the remarks made by Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, the Leader of Iran’s Islamic Revolution, in a meeting with a group of IRGC commanders. The Leader praised the IRGC’s missile attack on ISIS positions in Syria, and said Tehran’s missile defence power should be enhanced.
Iran’s huge gas deal with France’s Total for the development of a South Pars Gas Field phase and the reactions to the deal also remained a top story today.
The crisis in relations between Qatar and Saudi Arabia, and the negative response by Doha to the preconditions set by Riyadh and its allies also received great coverage.
