The families of those killed and injured in the terrorist attack at Naval Air Station Pensacola in December pf 2019 are suing the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for monetary compensation. That includes the families of the three sailors, as well as eight people who were physically injured and five who were emotionally traumatized, a total of 16 plaintiffs. The lawsuit says Saudi Arabia had every reason to know that 2nd Lt. Mohammed Saeed Al-Shamrani held serious anti-American sentiments and terroristic tendencies long before he joined the Royal Saudi Air Force in 2015. U.S. law allows victims of terror to sue foreign nations who are involved in terrorism attacks that occur within the United States.
