A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on November 21

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Monday and picked headlines from 23 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

Newspapers today covered the huge Arbaeen processions where 20 millions of pilgrims flocked to the Iraqi holy city of Karbala to mark the fortieth day after Imam Hussein’s martyrdom.

They also covered the appointment of two new army commanders by the Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei. The Leader gave Brigadier General Ahmad Reza Pourdastan the job of Army second-in-command, and also appointed Brigadier General Kiomars Heidari as commander of the Army Ground Force.

Another top story was the cancellation of Iranian Parliament Vice-Speaker Ali Motahari’s scheduled speech in northeastern city of Mashhad, and the criticisms raised against Interior Minister.

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