The new issue of the Afghan Taliban's monthly Arabic magazine Al-Somood (Al-Samoud) was released today. "Al-Samoud" translates approximately to the ability to withstand something or "staying power." In context, it can also mean something akin to "resistance." The magazine began as a simple newsletter-type publication with no graphics, but over the past couple of years has developed into a much more refined (design-wise) Internet publication.
The April issue can be viewed, via a previous post, HERE.
