A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on January 13

Iran Front Page – IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Sunday, January 13, 2019, and picked headlines from 17 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

The top story in all papers today was the Iranian officials’ strong protest against Poland’s decision to co-host an anti-Iran conference in collaboration with the US.

Also a top story was the second consecutive win of the Iranian national football team in the AFC Asian Cup 2019 in the UAE, which booked a place for the Team Melli in the next round of the tournament.

A viral video of several Iranian conscripts dancing to the music they themselves are playing also received great coverage. Many feared the video would lead to their punishment, but the top military service official General Kamali surprisingly supported the draftees in a post on his Instagram account, and said it is their right to be happy.

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