As we celebrate the UAE’s accomplishments across all fields, affirming its pioneering status, prestigious global standing, and the wise vision of our prudent leadership, we mark the golden jubilee of Al Jundi magazine.
Established 50 years ago under the guidance and support of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, Al-Jundi Magazine has become a leading national cultural and knowledge platform, working to instil morale in our heroic soldiers who have taken it upon themselves to serve and protect the nation with their lives and unlimited dedication and arm them with the latest knowledge of military and security developments.
Since its inaugural issue in 1973, Al Jundi magazine marked a qualitative shift in security and military media, taking the initiative to explore everything new across defence and military domains, whether academic or technical.
This has been documented and conveyed by Al-Jundi over the span of half a century since its establishment, as it remains a vibrant, renewed source of knowledge for leaders and personnel on the frontline of defending the nation.
Moreover, Al Jundi constitutes one of the most important platforms for monitoring technological advances in the military and security sectors
It promotes research and development in military and security affairs and provides a forum for outstanding researchers and academics who have spared no effort in imparting knowledge.
Furthermore, Al-Jundi has published scientific studies and research that helped develop the strategic capabilities of the Armed Forces by covering the latest innovations in artificial intelligence as well as inventions and cutting-edge military and security strategies, guided by the vision of its founder, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, which aims to boost morale and arm soldiers with enlightened, forward-thinking.
For half a century, Al Jundi has been a successful model of military journalism, renowned for its specialized, comprehensive content and support for national causes.
It has upheld the highest standards of journalistic credibility and ethics in providing information, always striving to present accurate, reliable facts.
Al Jundi has strongly backed national and geopolitical issues that boost national awareness and reinforce unity and cohesion in the face of strategic challenges. This has made it a trusted source for readers and an active contributor to enhancing military and strategic awareness in the Arab world.
Documenting the efforts of our brave soldiers is as vital as equipping them intellectually, and constitutes an integral part of the moral guidance system.
Therefore, Al Jundi has diligently chronicled the heroic achievements of the UAE’s valiant troops. We cannot forget Al-Jundi’s major role in highlighting the heroism of our virtuous martyrs and reuniting their families through accounts of their bravery, ensuring their eternal presence like a shield protecting us and future generations.
Thus, alongside its sister media platforms, Al Jundi remains an illuminating beacon, keeping the fragrant memory of the nation’s martyrs alive.
On this occasion, we congratulate the Ministry of Defence and Al Jundi’s team on the successes achieved by the magazine over 50 years, and the tremendous development it has undergone in form and content, making it an oasis of knowledge and a source of pride. We wish them further success and brilliance in portraying an honourable image of our beloved nation.
