Israeli NGO Asks to Seize Iranian Oil Tanker in Gibraltar to Compensate Terror Victims

(Daily Express-UK) Simon Osborne - An Israeli NGO, Shurat HaDin, is asking the Supreme Court of Gibraltar to grant an injunction to seize an Iranian oil tanker detained by Royal Marines off Gibraltar. It wants to use the proceeds to pay damages for the victims of terrorism sponsored by Iran. The NGO has won a series of judgments in U.S. courts holding Iran responsible for the murder of Israeli-Americans by Islamist groups including Hamas and Hizbullah. Shurat HaDin president Nitsana Darshan-Leitner told The Times: "The Grace 1 in Gibraltar is a rare opportunity for the victims to seize Iranian assets and for European governments to show that they are unforgiving in the struggle against terrorism."
