A US federal court on Thursday ordered Iran to pay $300 million in punitive damages for two suicide bombings it was accused of carrying out through terrorist groups it has supported, AP reported.

One of the rulings awarded the family of Alan Beer, a US citizen who was killed in a 2003 Jerusalem bus bombing by the "Iran-back organization Hamas," AP said.

Another award was given to US citizen Seth Haim, his father and his brother who were injured in a 1995 bus bombing in Gaza by "the Iranian-supported Shaqaqi Faction of the Palestine Islamic Jihad," AP reported.
