The brave families of those killed during Hamas’ deadly massacre against Israel on October 7 are suing Iran, Syria, and North Korea.

Backed by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), the federal lawsuit filed in Washington DC on Monday accuses all three dictatorships of providing financial, military, and tactical support to Hamas. Seeking $4 billion in damages, Iran specifically stands accused of its open admiration of Hamas’ unprovoked attack and continued pledges backing one of its favorite terror proxies.

“Iran is the world’s leading state sponsor of antisemitism and terror – along with Syria and North Korea, they must be held responsible for their roles in the largest antisemitic attack since the Holocaust,” ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt said.

Over 100 plaintiffs represented in the case, which include US citizens injured on October 7, hope to be compensated by the United States Justice Department’s Victims of State Sponsored Terrorism Fund. This fund provides much need relief to individuals who have won judgments against state sponsors of terrorism.

Though Iran and its proxies will undoubtedly treat the lawsuit with contempt, their reaction is of little importance to Nahar Neta, whose American-born mother was tragically killed on October 7.

“While nothing will ever undo the unbearable pain Hamas caused our family or the brutal losses we’ve suffered, we hope this case will bring some sense of justice. It’s important for us to be able to tell our stories so the world can hear how Hamas has terrorized Israel, the Jewish people, and many American citizens,” Nahar said in a statement issued through the ADL.

Obama should also be held accountable for plane loading money he gave to Iran the night before he left office. Where did he think this money was going to??
