Khalil at the beginning of 2016, was third in the hierarchy of the official “dzhebhat an-Nusra” and appointed “Emir” of the coastal area of Syria. He headed the office of intelligence and security of the terrorist organization militants who have killed people, kept in prisons, tortured. He is also responsible for the looting of property and the confiscation of vehicles of the Syrian free army.

Al-Husri became the successor Khalil in the post “Emir” of Deraa. He oversaw military operations groups in southern Syria. Earlier the terrorist was a religious Advisor “dzhebhat an-Nusra.”

In August 2014, the UN security Council adopted a resolution that imposes sanctions against individuals associated with terrorist groups “Islamic state” and “Dzhebhat EN-Nusra”. The decision obliges all countries to fight terrorist financing, recruitment into their ranks, arms transfers, and imposes a ban on economic activity in the territories controlled by terrorists in Iraq and Syria.
