He was sanctioned by the Treasury Department in 2015. Treasury’s reasoning was:  “Badr Al Din is assessed to be responsible for Hizballah's military operations in Syria since 2011, including the movement of Hizballah fighters from Lebanon to Syria, in support of the Syrian regime.  Since September 2011, strategic coordination was handled between Assad and Hizballah leader Hassan Nasrallah on a weekly basis, with Badr Al Din accompanying Nasrallah during the meetings in Damascus.  Since 2012, Badr Al Din coordinated Hizballah military activities in Syria.  Badr Al Din led Hizballah ground offensives in the Syrian town of al-Qusayr in February 2013, and in May 2013 the Free Syrian Army (FSA) confirmed that Badr Al Din was leading Hizballah's operations in al-Qusayr.” https://www.treasury.gov/press-center/press-releases/Pages/jl0121.aspx
