Headlines in Iranian English-language dailies on Jan 23

Tehran, IRNA – The following headlines appeared in English-language newspapers in the Iranian capital on Tuesday, January 23, 2024:


- A deep-rooted ideology cannot be destroyed

The Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip, in the wake of an unprecedented blitzkrieg on October 7 by Hamas that took Israel’s intelligence apparatus off guard, has left a trail of death and destruction in the coastal enclave but has failed to achieve the declared goal of eliminating the Palestinian resistance movement. Hamas is believed to have around 30,000 fighters, and a fresh US intelligence estimate, reported by the Wall Street Journal on Sunday, indicates that only 20% to 30% of them have been killed since Israel unleashed its massive air and ground campaign on Gaza.

- Iran bids farewell to slain advisers

Hundreds of mourners gathered on Monday in Tehran for the funeral of members of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) assassinated in an Israeli attack in Syria. The strike in Damascus on Saturday killed five members of the IRGC, the military force said. The funeral processions in Tehran were planned for three of the five IRGC members killed in Syria. Another funeral ceremony for the other two IRGC members was held in the holy city of Qom.

- US policy on Israel at crossroad of presidential election

The 2024 US presidential election are looming with yet another major option for the upcoming administration at hand, which is US’s unwavering support for Israel that has been a bedrock belief of many American voters. But now with Gaza in the midst of bloodshed, the situation has changed. Voters are now sending conflicting signals about the direction of US policy, particularly as the war in Gaza extends into its fourth month, resulting in more than 25,000 Palestinian deaths. The American voters seem to be deeply divided on Israel’s devastating offensive in Gaza. According to a New York Times/Siena College poll, the electorate appears to be of two minds on what should come next, a cease-fire, or a continuing campaign against Hamas, whose attack on Oct. 7 killed around 1,200 Israelis.


- West beating dead horse

As gory and devastating scenes continue to emerge from Gaza and people around the world wallow in the inability to help the Palestinians, American and European politicians have once again begun to endorse the two-state solution. UK Defense Minister Grant Shapps conveyed to British media this week that the establishment of "two separate states" in Palestinian territories stands as the sole avenue toward "ending the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians."

Belgium’s foreign minister indicated that Europe is actively working to "orchestrate a peace conference to set the two-state solution on the right course."

- Iran FM to visit Pakistan amid diplomatic thaw

Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian is expected to pay an official visit to Pakistan next week. On Monday, the Iranian foreign minister and his Pakistani counterpart, Jalil Abbas Jilani, released a joint statement following a phone call. Amirabdollahian will travel to Pakistan on January 29, 2024, according to the statement, at the request of the foreign minister of Pakistan. The senior diplomats from Pakistan and Iran also concurred that their respective nations’ ambassadors will resume their posts by January 26.

- Iran says it won’t let Israel’s security threats go unanswered

Iran’s foreign ministry spokesman has discussed the Israeli atrocities in Gaza, pointing out the extreme brutality of these actions against the Palestinians. In a press conference on Monday, Nasser Kanaani offered condolences for the five Iranian military advisors who fell victim to the heinous acts of the Zionist regime in Syria. He urged international entities to promptly address the complaints and bring the perpetrators of these war crimes against the Palestinians to justice.


- University sheltering Gazans in Khan Younis bombed

Gazans sheltered Monday from intense bombing and shooting in the city of Khan Younis. Witnesses reported deadly strikes and fierce fighting between Zionists soldiers and Hamas combatants overnight in the southern city which has become the latest epicenter of the war. The health ministry in Hamas-run Gaza reported on Monday that more than 120 people had been martyred in the previous 24 hours.

- The heavy cost of US lies

As the myth of the holocaust continues to claim torrents of human blood, its pitiless perpetrators of the past seven-and-a-half decades, whether the non-Semitic East European claimants to Judaism in occupation of Palestine or the Zionist-minded regimes of West Europe and North America, resort to preposterous lies in order to carry on the carnage in Gaza.

- Ex-Israeli intel head: Iranians ‘pragmatic’, ‘patient’

 A former head of Israel’s military intelligence has owned up to the fact that Iran is “pragmatic” and exerts ample “patience” to follow through its plans in the West Asia region, one of which he says is the elimination of Israel. Aharon Ze’evi-Farkash, the former head of Israeli military intelligence directorate (Aman), said in an interview with Israeli media that the regime does not have a “strategic policy” to deal with Iran and deter the Islamic Republic’s plans in the future, including its nuclear program.
