“Throughout the course of the Iraq campaign, a variety of weapons flowed into the country through direct purchases by the government of Iran,” wrote Colonel (ret.) Richard Kemp and Major (ret.) Chris Driver-Williams. “These included Explosively Formed Penetrators (EFPs), a shaped charge designed to penetrate armor. These weapons – often camouflaged as rocks – were identical to those employed by Hizbullah against Israeli forces. In 2006, the British Telegraph revealed that three Iranian factories were “mass producing” the roadside EFP bombs used to kill soldiers in Iraq.”
UNITED STATES VICTIMS OF STATE SPONSORED TERRORISM ACT
The United States Victims of State Sponsored Terrorism Act (USVSST) was passed by congress to ensure compensation for a specific group of international terror victims. Iranian supplied or sponsored terrorist weapons were responsible for thousands of casualties by US military personnel, contractors, and civilians. The United States government seized funds and/or settled with countries/banks that help sponsor terrorism. The hope of this fund is to provide the funds to ensure a normal productive life for those individuals and families who have been injured and/or suffered a loss.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE TO FILE A CLAIM?
Anyone who is a US person including members of the armed forces and their immediate family members may be eligible to file a claim for compensation.
