Iran ordered to pay $6 billion for aiding Al-Qaeda in 9/11 attacks

By Khaama Press - Wed May 02 2018, 1:57 pm

The judge of a court in the United States has ordered Iran to pay $6 billion in damages to the families of the victims of 9/11 attacks after the country was found guilty of aiding the Al-Qaeda terrorist network in the deadly and devastating attacks.

The order was issued by a federal judge George B. Daniels in New York on Tuesday after the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps and the Central Bank of the Islamic Republic of Iran were found liable for the deaths of 1,008 people.

“In December 2011, a New York federal court held a hearing and found that the evidence presented established that Iran’s provision of material support to al-Qaeda was a cause of the 9/11 attacks and the resulting damage, injuries, and deaths,” attorney Robert Haefele was quoted as saying by ABC News.

The government of Iran has not formally commented regarding the verdict issued by the court so far.

But the observers believe that Iran has never responded to the lawsuit and is unlikely to ever pay with the news outlet stating that the judgment is largely symbolic.

The judgment is part of the larger case the 9/11 families are pursuing against Saudi Arabia. There’s a conference in that case later this month, according to ABC News.

  1. WTF all the involved people , as to what has been shown in media, were from Saudi Arabia? As much I don’t like Iranian’s arrogance, I don’t think they and Afghanistan where ever involved in this. Bin Laden und that 911 team all were from Saudi Arabia. And who is their friend and sponsor? USA USA USA 🙂
