I heard that one who kills a soul is as if he killed all humanity, & the one who saves a soul is as if he has saved all humanity, my question is , what is the condition of killing an oppressor whom he killed many people by his order ?

Beloved what Allah is talking about in the ayah you are quoting is if you kill someone unjustly. If what the tyrant has done is deemed by the shariah to be punished by death. Than that is what will happen and it is not as if you killed the whole of humanity. Salaam

"Because of that, We decreed upon the Children of Israel that whoever kills a soul unless for a soul or for corruption [done] in the land – it is as if he had slain mankind entirely. And whoever saves one – it is as if he had saved mankind entirely. And our messengers had certainly come to them with clear proofs. Then indeed many of them, [even] after that, throughout the land, were transgressors."

again with this part; "... whoever kills a soul unless for a soul or for corruption [done] in the land..." we understand from it that if someone killed a soul(without a reason) then he deserve death and if someone make corruption in the land then he deserve death. those are the two terms to kill someone(killing other/s or making corruption on earth)..

for your question; what is the condition of killing an oppressor whom he killed many people by his order ? it is applied on the both cases because he killed or ordered to kill many people and because he practice corruption in the land. and Allah knows better!
