This study clarifies the position of Saudi Arabia towards the Algerian Revolution (1954-1962) based on the Saudi weekly newspaper Umm al-Qura published in Mecca starting in 1924, which was considered to be the official newspaper of the Saudi Arabian government. The importance of the study lies in revealing the Saudi position towards the Algerian revolution and how Saudi Arabia supported it politically and financially and attempted to bring the Algerian situation to the international community. Saudi Arabia worked to support the leadership of the Algerian revolution in remaining steadfast in the face of the French colonialists.
The study focuses on a Saudi source, the Umm al-Qura newspaper, which published news articles about the Algerian situation between 1954 and 1962. A previous study by Abdalkarim Marah had investigated the Saudi position based only on Algerian sources.
