Issue 4 of Sada al-Malahim (The Echo of Glorious Battles), the main organ of al-Qaeda in Yemen, is out. One article caught my eye: “Somalia…The Forgotten Land.”

Issue 27 of Sada al-Jihad (The Echo of Jihad) is also out. SJ is produced by the Global Islamic Media Front. A few articles look interesting: “Al-Qaeda Is a Stone’s Throw From Palestine,” “Apostates Are More Dangerous Than the Enemy,” and “Interrogation (Methods and Phases).”

Finally, the Ansar Media Institute published issue 50 of Hassad* al-Mujahidin (Harvester of the Mujahids). The periodical focuses mainly on Iraq and most of this issue is about various attacks and prison breaks. There is one article worth noting: “The Camera: A Weapon Without Bullets.”

* Note: Hisad (“harvest”) seems to make more sense than Hassad (“harvester”) for the title, but that’s how the .pdf file is vocalized, so I’m going with it.

    The article you reference in Sada al-Malahim was written by Qasim al-Raymi, the second-in-command of al-Qaeda in Yemen, and one of the escapees from the infamous Feb. 2006 prison break. One of his fellow escapees, Mansur al-Bayhani, was killed by US shelling in Somalia back in June 2007.

    I haven’t seen a lot so far from al-Qaeda in Yemen on Somalia, but I wonder if this article might represent a change or is just a one-off reference.
