Fahd Salih Sulayman Al Jutayli (c. 1983 – September 2009) was a citizen of Saudi Arabia who was held in extrajudicial detention in the United States Guantanamo Bay detention camps, in Cuba.[1] Al Jutayli's Guantanamo Internment Serial Number was 177. Joint Task Force Guantanamo counter-terrorism analysts estimate that Al Jutayli was born in 1983, in Burayada, Saudi Arabia.

Combatant Status Review

Al Jutayli was among the 60% of prisoners who participated in the tribunal hearings.[2] He was accused of being associated with Al Qaeda and a Taliban fighter. Al Jutayli denied all the allegations. His "enemy combatant" status was confirmed by Tribunal panel 12. The Board unanimously concluded he continued to represent a threat to the United States. England authorized his transfer on July 28, 2005. According to The Saudi Repatriates Report Al Jutayli was one of fifteen men repatriated on May 15, 2006.[3]

Named on the Saudi most wanted list

On February 3, 2009 Al Jutayli was named on Saudi Arabia's list of most wanted suspected terrorists.[4] There were 85 names on the list, including ten other former Guantanamo captives. According to his mother he was living openly in Saudi Arabia just days prior to the publication of the most wanted list.

Reported to have been killed fighting Yemeni security officials

Yemeni newspapers reported that two militants, including a former Guantanamo captive they identified as "Fahad Saleh al-Jotaili" were killed in combat in September 2009.[5] He was killed in clashes between Yemeni security officials and "al-Houthi rebels in Saada."

The Yemen Post reported on September 27 that Othman Al-Ghamedi and Yousuf Al-Shahri had contacted their families requesting that they pass on news to the Al Jutayli's family that he had died during a military action by Yemeni security officials.[6]

The Saudi Interior Ministry reported that DNA tests had confirmed that Al Jutayli was one of the several militants killed on September 14, 2009.[7][8] The Saudi press release named Mohammed Abdel-Rahman al-Rashed and Sultan Radi al-Utaibi as the other two men killed by the blast, and noted that they were both on the Saudi most wanted list.
