Al-Dhubhani is a prominent military instructor with AQAP with a large number of fighters under his supervision. He has commanded an armed AQAP-associated group made up of approximately 2,000 fighters. And he has used his connections to conduct fundraising for AQAP throughout Taiz Governorate and overseas.

Treasury says that al-Dhubhani led these AQAP forces as of early 2017, but months earlier he also purportedly backed the Islamic State in Taiz.

As of early June 2016, al-Dhubhani served with the Islamic State in Taiz Governorate, where his deputies, along with a large number of other (Islamic State) fighters, fought under the Sunni resistance. Al-Dhubhani also paid various Sunni militants, to secure continued support for (Islamic State) activities in Taiz in late October 2016.
