Al-massar is the official mouthpiece of the Eritrean Islamic Congress on the Internet. Its first inception was in 2007 and then discontinued the service due technical reasons. In May, 2010, it resumed again with the current updates and improvements.
According to the plan developed, the web-site will use three languages, namely Arabic, Tigrinya and English. Both Tigrinya and Arabic are in use, since they are regarded as official/common languages of Eritrea, while English is international language which we require to expand the outreach of our media.
Initially, the site began by using Arabic and English. However, after under carrying the necessary arrangements, it incorporated the use of Tigrinya language and thus Al-massar web-site has accomplished its strategy according to its targeted objective/plans.
