A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on June 14

Iran Newspaper front pages

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Tuesday and picked headlines from 24 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

Many Iranian papers covered IRIB’s recent televised interview with the Spokesman for the Iranian Administration, Mohammad Baqer Nobakht, in which he discussed the astronomical salaries paid to certain executives and apologized for the unfair payment system. He vowed to have the mechanism corrected, working with Parliament.

Iran’s freestyle wrestling team won their 5th consecutive (and 7th total) world championship in the US city of Los Angeles on June 12. In covering the championship, some headlines spotlighted Iran’s victories over the US and Russia, as well as the tournament’s location, boasting that Iran had defeated the two superpowers on American soil to become world champion.

Two separate operations by the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) and the Iranian Police in the west and east of the country also received great attention. 10 terrorists, including the regional commander of the PJAK terrorist group, were killed during the operations. One Police officer was also killed in the operations near the southeastern city of Khash.
