After the death of the Wolf, Khaled Al-Asad seized control of Al-Qatala. Under his leadership, Al-Asad has turned Al-Qatala into an army by using his powerful connections to supply them with weapons, armoured vehicles and helicopters. He is first seen leading Al-Qatala in the invasion of Verdansk. After occupying the city, an alliance was made to oppose him and his army called Armistice. After a while of fighting, Al-Asad pulled his troops out of Verdansk and deployed massive gas clouds which caused Armistice to fight among themselves.
