Al Qaeda’s alleged ‘representative in Syria’ previously freed from US Custody in Afghanistan | FDD's Long War Journal

Al Qaeda’s alleged ‘representative in Syria’ previously freed from US Custody in Afghanistan | FDD's Long War Journal: On Mar. 14, the US Treasury Department announced its decision to impose sanctions on Kuwaiti national Muhammad Hadi al-‘Anizi, saying he is “a terrorist facilitator and financier based in Kuwait.” Treasury stated that in mid- to late-2014, al-‘Anizi was appointed as al Qaeda’s “representative in Syria by AQ senior leadership.” As FDD’s Long War Journal noted, al-‘Anizi’s appointment came shortly after the Feb. 2014 assassination of Abu Khalid al Suri, whom Treasury had also described as al Qaeda’s representative in Syria.
