Islamic Jihad militants called on their followers to launch attacks on Israeli soldiers and settlers to retaliate for a U.S. court decision about a 1995 terror attack carried out by the group. The verdict, in which Iran was ordered to pay nearly $250 million to the family of an American killed in the attack, was an “indicator of the arrogance of American policy in the world,” according to a fax the group sent to a wire service.
