Information on the Arabic publications al-Masira al-Jida and al-Masirah al-Jadidah could not be found among the sources consulted by the DIRB.

The following information may be of general interest, however. The attachment from The Serials Directory mentions an Arabic publication entitled al-Masirah, which is published in the United States and Canada, and an Arabic publication entitled al-Masirah al-Yamaniyah, which is published in San'a (1993, 2248). According to Europa 1995, the monthly publication al-Maseerah (Journey) is published by the Ministry of Information in San'a (1995, 3444).

This Response was prepared after researching publicly accessible information currently available to the DIRB within time constraints. This Response is not, and does not purport to be, conclusive as to the merit of any particular claim to refugee status or asylum. Please find below the list of additional sources consulted in researching this Information Request.
