The United States is offering a $10 million reward for information about Muhammad Al-Jawlani, the leader of Al-Nusra terrorist group in Syria, the State Department has announced. Al-Nusra is an affiliate of Al-Qaeda.

"The US Department of State’s Rewards for Justice program is offering a reward of up to $10 million for information leading to the identification or location of Muhammad al-Jawlani, leader of the al-Nusrah Front (ANF) terrorist group," the State Department said in a statement.

It is the first such reward for an Al-Nusra leader.

The State Department designated Al-Nusra as a foreign terrorist organization in November. Al-Jawlani changed the name of the group to Jabhat Fath al Sham last July.

Americans are prohibited from financial dealings with foreign terrorist organizations, and the terrorist group’s properties and interests in the US were blocked. Providing material support to Al-Nusra is also illegal.

Much of what is known about Al-Jawlani, is based on information released by anonymous senior Iraqi military intelligence officials, according to He is believed to be a teacher of classical Arabic.

The State Department designated Al-Jawlani as a specially designated global terrorist in May 2013.
