A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on June 17

Iran Front Page- IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Sunday, June 17, and picked headlines from 26 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

All newspapers today covered the remarks made by the Leader of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei during the sermons that followed Eid-ul-Fitr prayers in Tehran.

The top story, however, was the historic victory of the Iranian national team against Morocco in its first match in the FIFA World Cup 2018 in Russia. Now the Team Melli is at the top position of the Group B, where the favourites Spain and Portugal are expected to advance to the next stage.

The ongoing operation by the Saudi-led coalition, backed by American, French, and Israeli forces, to capture the Yemeni port city of Hudaydah also received great coverage.
