A New York federal court has ordered compensation of $219 million from the PLO and Palestine Authority for victims of attacks to Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades and Hamas. Families of the victims demand compensation over shootings and bombings in 2002 to 2004 that had killed 33 people and injured over four hundred. Plaintiffs’ lawyer Nitsana Darshan-Leitner:
Now the PLO and the PA know there is a price for supporting terrorism.
The defendants announce that are seeking for appeal. Palestinian Deputy Information Minister, Mahmoud Khalifa:
Deeply disappointed by the adverse decision issued today in a New York court.
