ICJ rules in favour of Iran and against USA

Bombing of oil platforms in late 1980s illegal
The final decision of the international Court of Justice in The Hague has ruled definitively against the US bombing against Iranian oil platforms in the late 1980s in a decision to which there is no appeal.

The ICJ determined on November 7th that the bombing was illegal because it was in breach of a treaty between the countries signed in 1955. The judges ruled 14-2 that in no circumstances could these attacks, in October 1987 and April 1988, be determined acts of self-defence.

However, the judges ruled against the payment of reparations by the USA to Iran due to the fact that the platforms destroyed in the first attack were not operational and by the second attack, the USA had already imposed an embargo on oil trade with Iran.
