Lawyers for Americans killed and injured in terrorist attacks are seeking millions of dollars from Jordan-based Arab Bank.

The plaintiffs claim the bank knowingly served as a conduit for millions of dollars that a Saudi charity and others paid to Hamas operatives and the families of “martyrs” who were killed in suicidal attacks in Israel and the occupied territories.

The lawyers representing the plaintiffs have similar cases pending against Credit Lyonnaise and National Westminster Bank, and can be expected to file more if they win.

There are 300 plaintiffs with claims stemming from 24 attacks between 2000 and 2004.
