al-Nadhari has featured in many of AQAP's propaganda videos such as rebuking the Islamic State announcement of expanding their caliphate into Yemen and renewing loyalties to al-Qaeda Emir Ayman al-Zawahiri. In his address, al-Nadhari stated "The announcement of the caliphate for all Muslims by our brothers in the Islamic State did not meet the required conditions. The policy of our brothers in the Islamic State split the ranks of the mujahideen, and scattered them, in this sensitive phase in the history of the mujahid ummah [community]. This is one of the absolutely forbidden matters in the religion of Allah.".
On 31 January 2015 al-Nadhari and three other AQAP militants were killed by a US drone strike.
