A nice touch in the this latest UN release is a full page background of the newly-listed person (or maybe I never noticed it before):




Date on which the narrative summary became available on the Committee’s website: 24.07.2013

Abu Mohammed al-Jawlani was listed on 24 July 2013 pursuant to paragraphs 2 and 3 of resolution 2083

(2012) as being associated with Al-Qaida and other individuals, groups, undertakings or entities associated

with Al-Qaida for “participating in the financing, planning, facilitating, preparing, or perpetrating of acts or

activities by, in conjunction with, under the name of, on behalf of, or in support of”, “supplying, selling or

transferring arms and related materiel to”, and “Recruiting for” Al-Qaida (QE.A.4.01), Al-Qaida in Iraq

(QE.J.115.04), Ayman al-Zawahiri (QI. A.6.01), and Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi (QI.A. 299.11).

Additional information:

Abu Mohammed al-Jawlani is the leader of Jabhat al-Nusrah, a Syria-based terrorist group listed as an alias

of Al-Qaida in Iraq (QE.J.115.04). In 2011 Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, listed as Ibrahim Awwad Ibrahim Ali

al-Badri al-Samarrai (QI.A.299.11), instructed Abu Mohammed al-Jawlani to establish a front for Al-Qaida in

Iraq in Syria by developing a local presence and fighting. Al-Qaida in Iraq supplied Jabhat al-Nusrah with

manpower, money, weapons and advice.

The formation of Jabhat al-Nusrah, featuring Abu Mohammed al-Jawlani, was announced on 23 January

2012. Abu Mohammed stated that the group consisted of fighters from the Near East.

In a statement issued in late May 2012 by Jabhat al-Nusrah’s media outlet Al-Manara Al-Baydh'a Media

Foundation (the White Minaret), Abu Mohammed al-Jawlani was referred to as “the supervisor general for

Jabhat al-Nusrah”. He called on his followers in Jabhat al-Nusrah to carry out attacks in revenge for a

reported massacre in Houla, Syria, and urged the populations of the Levant to unite under his movement.

Many of the attacks carried out by Jabhat al-Nusrah under the command of Abu Mohammed al-Jawlani have

caused the deaths of civilians.

In a statement released on 10 April 2013, Abu Mohammed al-Jawlani confirmed that Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi

gave Jabhat al-Nusrah considerable support, and that Abu Bakr had deputised Abu Mohammed to run the

Al-Qaida fight in Syria. Abu Mohammed declared that it was his intention to establish a state in the Levant

region (not just Syria) through violent means. Abu Mohammed asserted his pride in the banner of Al-Qaida

in Iraq. Abu Mohammed pledged his and his organisation's allegiance to Aiman Muhammed Rabi

al-Zawahiri (QI.A.6.01), the head of the international Al-Qaida umbrella movement and deferred to his


Abu Mohammed al-Jawlani's media statements have been published by the same internet sites that host

authentic Al-Qaida media. In June 2013, the leader of Al-Qaida, Ayman al-Zawahiri, confirmed in a letter to

Abu Bakr and Abu Mohammed that Abu Mohammed al-Jawlani is in charge of Jabhat al-Nusrah.

Jabhat al-Nusrah operates in Syria where it has carried out a number of terrorist attacks.
