Walid Abdul Khorsh is recognized as a known supporter of the regime of Fatha Al-Hassan. When Al-Hassan seized power through the Yemeni Liberation Authority, he used Khorsh to help murder the ruling family in Sana'a, the country's capital. From then, Khorsh became a symbol of fear used to keep the people in check, as he was known to torture and murder dissidents. Khorsh was also responsible for managing the town's black market dealings, including a meeting with Chechen rebels. Agency operatives eliminated him prior to staging a trap for the Chechens with assistance from Ehud Ben Zohar of the Israeli Mossad.
