IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Tuesday, April 9, 2019, and picked headlines from 18 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

All newspapers today covered the US administration’s designation of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) as a “foreign terrorist organization” and Iran’s reciprocal move to blacklist the US CENTCOM, and consider the US government as a “state sponsor of terrorism.”
