Ettela’At

Newspaper

Ettela’At is the oldest Iranian Persian-language daily newspaper. It is also the oldest Iranian newspaper, having been founded in 1926. It is one of Iran’s most widely read newspapers and currently the only international Persian newspaper. The paper is noted for being one of the few right wing Arab newspapers with a heavy international focus, as it continuously reports on Iranian events and Iranian persons abroad. Illustrating the right wing nature of the paper was its stance against the 1979 Iranian Revolution where, before the revolution, it published articles defaming Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini. Following the publication of materials slandering Ayatollah, protesters gathered outside Ettela’At headquarters and were subsequently fired upon by police when they refused to disperse.
