Khaled Al-Asad (in Arabic: خالد الأسد) is one of the two main antagonists (along with Imran Zakhaev) of the Spec Ops story in the 2019 video game, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, the reboot of the Modern Warfare series. He is the new leader of Al-Qatala following the Wolf's death, renamed it "Al-Qatala-Aljahdid" and leads it in a vengeance campaign against Russia for General Barkov's crimes.
Little is known about Al-Asad's life before he took over Al-Qatala. However, once he did following the death of the Wolf, he renamed the organization as "Al-Qatala-Aljahdid" and personally led them in an invasion on Verdansk, as revenge against Russia for General Barkov's innumerable war crimes against Urzikstan.
During this invasion, Al-Asad became associated with the arms dealer Imran Zakhaev, who had supplied the organization with heavy weapons, armored vehicles and helicopters, transforming the extremist group into a military-powered army. He is not seen when his supply chain is cut off, and remains at large.
- It is theorized that Hadir Karim, a villain in the game's campaign story, is the rebooted timeline's version of Al-Asad, due to being named by his father as "his little lion" and Al-Asad's name translating to "the immortal lion".
