Daily newspaper

Founded by Lebanese publisher Kamel Mrowa in Beirut in 1946, Al-Hayat follows in the tradition of the Lebanese press. From 1988 onwards it received financial backing from the Saudi Arabian Prince Khalid bin Sultan, who later took it over completely. Politically, it was closely aligned with the Saudi royal family. The newspaper was struggling with financial difficulties. The print edition was discontinued in most countries in June 2017. The online edition was also discontinued in March 2020.
