A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on November 5

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Tuesday, December 19, and picked headlines from 14 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

The air pollution in major Iranian cities remained the top story in almost all newspapers today, as all schools have been shut down in several big cities including Tehran.

Both reformist and conservative papers covered the prosecutor general’s remarks about the involvement of certain officials and their families in the smuggling of goods into the country.

The US veto of a UN Security Council draft resolution against Trump’s decision on Jerusalem al-Quds also received great coverage.

The above issues, as well as many more, are highlighted in the following headlines and top stories:
