Jerusalem court rules: PA must compensate 34 Israeli terror victims

The Jerusalem District Court ruled Monday that the Palestinian Authority must compensate 34 Israelis killed in 17 terror attacks in two decades. The ruling refers for the first time to attacks by all terrorist organizations, including Hamas and Islamic Jihad, on the grounds that the Palestinian Authority maintains financial support for the families of all Palestinian suicide bombers and other terrorists serving sentences in Israeli jails. The landmark ruling responded to cases going on for about 20 years after all 17 claims were consolidated into a single case brought by the Shurat HaDin (Israel Law Center) organization on their behalf. The amounts are to be determined at a later date.
