A magnitude 5.2 earthquake that jolted Tehran and Alborz provinces late Wednesday made the headlines in a few newspapers on Thursday.
Several papers also covered the severe air pollution in the capital and other megacities of Iran, reporting that Wednesday has been the most polluted day of the year in Tehran.
The UN General Assembly’s vote for a Resolution on Palestinians’ right to decide their fate also received great coverage. The vote came after the US vetoed an Egyptian-drafted UNSC Resolution against Trump’s controversial decision on Jerusalem al-Quds.
