More than 100 US veterans and relatives of American soldiers killed or wounded in Iraq have sued five major pharmaceutical corporations for financing Iran-backed terrorist organizations in Iraq.

A lawsuit filed in US District Court in Washington, DC on Tuesday claimsAstraZeneca, General Electric, Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer and Roche Holding financed terrorist organizations that killed hundreds of American soldiers in Iraq.

The companies have been accused of paying kickbacks to officials in Iraq’s Health Ministry when the office was controlled by the Jaysh al-Mahdi, or Mahdi Army, an Iraqi militia backed by Iran.

Jaysh al-Mahdi is not considered a terrorist organization by the US State Department, the Shia militia was backed by Hezbollah, which is designated as a terrorist organization. The lawsuit argues the companies financed the terrorist organization by paying bribes to Health Ministry officials as much as 20 percent of a total contract’s value.

The plaintiffs argue the companies paid Health Ministry officials these “commissions” by providing extra drugs and equipment deliberately packaged in “a manner conducive to street resale,” which ensured Health Ministry officials could sell them on the black market.
