Aletihad, published in 1969, is the first Arabic daily newspaper in the UAE. Since its launch, Aletihad has proven its presence as a pioneer in the world of publishing, as it currently enjoys a wide circulation across the seven emirates and key capitals in the region and around the world.

Under the slogan ‘Your First Source,’ Aletihad offers authoritative news coverage and analysis that highlights the UAE’s accomplishments, and covers key issues that relate to both Emirati and Arab communities. As part of its in-depth, interactive approach to journalism, Aletihad, features the work of some of the most influential writers and columnists from around the Arab world. 

The newspaper also possesses ‘The Smart Room,’ which leverages the latest technology and software to monitor breaking news from local and international news sources. In May 2015, the paper revealed its latest application for Apple Watch, which offers its readers immediate access to the latest news and analysis, making it the first Arabic news source in the Middle East to embrace this new technology.
