More than 200 veterans and their families filed a lawsuit accusing six major banks of helping Iran move tens of millions of dollars to groups targeting US soldiers in Iraq during the war, The Wall Street Journal reported.
The lawsuit alleges that banks ignored the risk that some of the billions of dollars they helped Iran secretly funnel through the US financial system would wind up in the hands of Iran's Revolutionary Guards Corps and its proxies that orchestrated attacks against US troops in Iraq.
The suit filed documents scores of attacks, including a 2007 incident in which a dozen men dressed in US military fatigues breached an Iraqi headquarters in Karbala, abducted four American soldiers and executed them.
Documents later retrieved from captured militants pointed to the involvement of Hezbollah and the Revolutionary Guard Corps, an elite Iranian force, the lawsuit said.
