In 2003, another court found that Iran provided logistics and financial aide to Hezbollah in the 1983 bombing in Beirut.
Iran dismissed the courts ruling holding it liable by saying, " the decision was provoked by the Zionists."
Good answer! I'm not really sure if Iran meant their decision to help Hezbollah or the courts ruling.
However, now with this new court ruling holding Iran responsible for paying this $2.65 billion to the families of the soldiers who died in that
attack, the families are lobbying for legislation that would "make it easier to chase down and seize Iranian assets
Sounds like a pretty good way to start a war to me, start seizing Iranian assets. (I personally don't want the US to end up in a war with Iran)
I guess only time will tell if this administration uses this court ruling in any way to try to start a war with Iran.
