Thursday was a day between two holidays in Iran, and thus many newspapers were not published. However, the few papers published today mostly covered the ongoing reactions to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s recent anti-Iran show.

Also a top story was Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif’s criticism of the opponents of the Rouhani administration for harming the country’s national interests.
