Former Tajikistan special operations colonel, police commander, and military sniper Gulmurod Khalimov is an Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) member and recruiter. He was the commander of a special paramilitary unit in the Tajikistan Ministry of Interior.

The United Nations Security Council Resolutions 1267/1989/2253 ISIL (Da’esh) and al-Qaida Sanctions Committee added him to its sanctions list in February 2016. Khalimov is wanted by the Government of Tajikistan.
