The allegations come as 15 of the 19 attackers were Saudi citizens and not a single one was Iranian.  Two were from the United Arab Emirates, and one each from Egypt and Lebanon.

A US judge ordered Iran to pay $10.5 billion for 9/11 attacks

It is reported that a US court has vindicated Saudi Arabia and ruled against Iran over the ‘September 11’ incidents in America.

On Wednesday, New York district judge George Daniels issued the default judgment claiming Iran failed to defend itself against allegations of having a role in the attacks.

According to the report, the court ruled that Iran must pay more than 10 billion dollars in damages to families of people killed on 9/11.

“I never heard about this ruling and I’m very much surprised because the judge had no reason whatsoever to issue such a ruling… Iran never took part in any court hearings related to the events of September 11, 2001, even if such an absurd and ridiculous decision has been made, the charges simply hold no water because Iran has never been mentioned at any stage of the investigation and the trials that followed,”Hossein Sheikholeslam, a senior aide to Iran’s parliamentary speaker said to Sputnik.

The allegations come as 15 of the 19 attackers were Saudi citizens and not a single one was Iranian.  Two were from the United Arab Emirates, and one each from Egypt and Lebanon.

Last year, Saudi Arabia was legally cleared from paying damages to families of 9/11 after Judge Daniels dismissed accounts that the Persian Gulf monarchy provided material support to the terrorists and ruled that Riyadh had sovereign immunity.

According to the US officials narrative those attacks were carried out by al-Qaeda terrorists but many experts have raised questions about the official account, saying it was a false-flag operation and that former al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, also of Saudi origin, was just a bogeyman for the US military-industrial complex.

However, the September 11, 2001 attacks  were a series of strikes in the US, which killed nearly 3,000 people and caused about $10 billion worth of property and infrastructure damage.

    It is fine.
    I hope Iran will present a thick dossier with scientific evidence, showing:
    -who did have a motif
    -who did have the means
    -who profited
    -who were the perpetrators.
    I hope strongly US is stupid enough to go through appeal.
