Halim was among the undercover CTU agents posing as members of GeneralMohmar Habib's "Al-Tahireen" terrorist cell sent to rescue Abu Fayed from CTU custody. Halim and Jamal grabbed Fayed during the escape and lead him into the back of their van. Fayed demanded a gun, and grabbed at Halim's pistol. Jamal ordered Halim to allow Fayed to take the gun. At 10:33pm, the van pulled into a garage and Fayed spoke to Habib. However, Habib (who had been arrested by his government and was under duress), covertly alerted Fayed that the men were not sent by him, and Fayed managed to shoot and kill Halim and Talit, and severely wounded Jamal before escaping.
