In 2004, Abd al-Khaliq was recruited by Al-Qaida to access sources of funding and to procure reliable equipment to expand Al-Qaida operations in Afghanistan – ultimately to carry out larger attacks there. Abd al-Khaliq also traveled to South Asia for terrorist training and to fight with Al-Qaida in Afghanistan. His training included instruction in the use of small arms and explosives. Abd al-Khaliq resided in Al-Qaida, Taliban, and LIFG controlled properties during his training period.
Between 2004 and 2007, Abd al-Khaliq traveled to Iran five times on behalf of Al-Qaida and the LIFG for his facilitation duties. During each of these trips, he met with senior Al-Qaida facilitators. During this same timeframe, Abd al-Khaliq provided material support to Al-Qaida and the LIFG by equipping them with electrical parts used in explosives, laptop computers, GPS devices, and other military equipment. Additionally, Abd al-Khaliq arranged the transportation of fighters, money, and material to LIFG camps in South Asia.
In January 2007, Abd al-Khaliq was arrested in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) on charges of being a member of Al-Qaida and the LIFG. Following his conviction in the UAE in late 2007, Abd al-Khaliq was transferred in early 2008 to Bahraini custody to serve out the remainder of his sentence.
