More than a decade ago, a second intifada led to the killings of Palestinians, Israelis and Americans.
And Monday, a long legal battle ended with a decision holding the Palestinian Authority and the Palestine Liberation Organization, or PLO, responsible for those Americans' deaths.
This has two main effects. For one, families of the U.S. victims will receive three times the damages what they would've otherwise, thanks to terrorism laws. The total amount awarded is now $655.5 million.
