This report summarizes the most prominent articles on the subject of global Jihad published in the Arabic media in the second half of July 2011. Following are the main issues raised in this report:
• The US exposes collaboration between Al-Qaeda and the Iranian government through the activity of a group smuggling operatives and funds from the Middle East via Iran to Pakistan and Afghanistan.
• Fighting between the Yemeni army, backed by fighters from the local tribes, and Al-Qaeda operatives entrenched in the city of Zinjibar in the Abyan Province in the south of Yemen.
• For the first time in many months – Al-Qaeda is returning to the pattern of suicide bombings. Extensive military operations by the Algerian security forces prevent additional suicide attacks.
