IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Monday, August 14, and picked headlines from 17 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

The top story in today’s newspapers was a bill unanimously approved by the Iranian Parliament, and also hailed by the foreign ministry, to counter the US hostile moves against Iran.

Monday’s papers also covered another legislation approved by the Parliament to lift death penalty for those who carry less than 50 kilograms of traditional illicit drugs (like opium) or 2 kilograms of new industrial and chemical illicit drugs (like morphine).
