U.S. Court Fines Palestinian Groups Millions
Sponsoring terror is costly. A federal court in New York is demanding that the Palestinian Authority and the Palestinian Liberation Organization pay a whopping $218.5 million for supporting six terror attacks in Israel that killed 33, including Americans, between 2002 and 2004. The victory spells big cash for 10 plaintiff families, as the fine is tripled to $655.5 million under a U.S. anti-terrorism law. Whether the Palestinian groups can or will pay remains unclear, but they have called the claims “baseless” and plan to appeal.
