Iran Demands U.S. Pay $1 Billion For Alleged Terror Strikes

  • An Iranian court on Wednesday ordered the United States government to pay more than $1 billion in fines for terror strikes that Tehran now says were American-ordered.
  • The court determined “the U.S. government as well as some American officials and institutions must pay $312,950,000 in damages” to the families of those killed in a 2017 terror strike on Iran’s parliament and a popular holy site.
  • The court “also set $9,950,000 for material damages, $104 million for moral damages caused to the plaintiffs, and $199 million for punitive damages,” according to Iran’s state-controlled press.
