Several US nationals, injured during Hizb Allah’s attacks on Israel, are suing North Korean government for aiding Hizb Allah, by training officials – including Hassan Nasrallah – and building complex bunker network under towns and villages, which Hizb Allah operatives used to store weapons and hide from IDF forces:

These underground bunkers, the lawsuit stated, allowed Hizbullah to launch hundreds of rockets toward northern Israel even as Israeli warplanes sought to bomb the launchers.

Fourty-three Israeli civilians were killed and more than 4,000 others were injured during the war.

The statement of claim cites a May 8, 2008 Congressional memorandum prepared for the US House Foreign Affairs Committee which describes one of the North Korean-built facilities as “a 25 kilometer underground tunnel that Hizbullah used to move troops.

“Hizbullah’s underground facilities significantly improved Hizbullah’s ability to fight the Israelis during the 2006 Israel-Lebanon war,” the memo read.

The suit requests more than a $100 million in compensatory damages and an unspecified sum of punitive damages. The complaint also names Hizbullah as a defendant.

Unfortunately for them, this lawsuit will only draw attention, as there absolutely is no way Jong Il would pay.
