Rewards for Justice is offering a reward of up to $5 million for information on Khalil Yusif Harb, also known as Sayyid Ahmad and Abu Mustafa. Harb is a close adviser to Hassan Nasrallah, leader of U.S.-designated Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO) Hizballah, and has served as the group’s chief military liaison to Iranian and Palestinian terrorist organizations. Harb has commanded and supervised Hizballah’s military operations in the Palestinian Territories and several countries throughout the Middle East. Since 2012, Harb has been involved in the movement of large amounts of currency to Hizballah’s political allies in Yemen.
On August 22, 2013, the U.S. Department of the Treasury designated Harb as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist pursuant to Executive Order 13224, as amended. As a result of this designation, among other consequences, all property, and interests in property, of Harb that are subject to U.S. jurisdiction are blocked, and U.S. persons are generally prohibited from engaging in any transactions with Harb. In addition, it is a crime to knowingly provide, or attempt or conspire to provide, material support or resources to the FTO Hizballah.
