- "Is this Bakhmala? The Khalid Khandil mission, that was you."
- ―Black Widow
Khalid Khandil was deemed a target by the United States Armed Forces, who were tasked with apprehending him. To avoid being arrested, Khandil hid himself in an area protected by soldiers using RPGs, preventing the military from sending helicopters to the area.
To capture him, Sam Wilson and his pararescue unit were tasked with the mission of infiltrating the area using two sets of EXO-7 Falcon mechanical wing harnesses. Though Khandil's men were able to kill Riley with one of the RPGs, Wilson continued his mission and apprehended Khandil, bringing him into custody of the United States Armed Forces.
