A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on November 17

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Thursday and picked headlines from 18 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

Newspapers today covered the remarks made by the Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei in a meeting with a group of people from Isfahan. They mainly pointed to Ayatollah Khamenei’s comments about the US elections and the election of Donald Trump as the new president.

Another top story today was the Arbaeen processions, where millions of Shiite pilgrims are heading to the Iraqi holy city of Karbala to mark the fortieth day after the martyrdom of Imam Hussein.

The US House of Representatives’ move to extend the anti-Iran sanctions for 10 years and the consensus between Democrats and Republicans in this regard also received great coverage.
