IDF soldier at end of war with LebanonVictims of 2006 rocket strikes on Israel cannot sue Al Jazeera on grounds the broadcaster intentionally helped Hezbollah attack civilians by reporting the sites of explosions, a U.S. judge ruled this week.

The Israeli plaintiffs, who were asking for 1.2 billion dollars in damages from Al Jazeera, said the Qatar-based news network helped Hezbollah militants target their rockets more accurately during the 34-day war with Israel.

Their lawsuit, filed a year ago, argued that a Manhattan court had jurisdiction over the case because U.S. citizens had been harmed.

In her opinion dismissing the suit, Manhattan federal court Judge Kimba Wood said the victims had failed to show in their case that Al Jazeera had the specific intention of aiding Hezbollah.

"Plaintiffs have offered no facts suggesting that defendant even knew that it was providing anything to Hezbollah," Wood said, adding the victims "have offered no facts suggesting that Hezbollah viewed defendant's broadcasts."
