Iran summoned their Swiss ambassador on Tuesday after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that almost $2 billion worth of Iranian frozen assets must be turned over to U.S. families killed by Iranian-backed groups.

Infuriated over the ruling, the Iranian government warned the U.S. that they would take them to the International Court of Justice at The Hague in order to prevent the distribution of their assets.

“Iran’s strong objection over the ruling was conveyed during the meeting between Iranian official and the Swiss envoy. Iranian official underlined that the ruling was against international laws and bilateral agreements,” the semi-official ILNA news agency quoted Foreign Ministry as saying.

The U.S. is primarily seeking to compensate the families of the Marines killed in the 1983 Beirut bombing and the truck bombing in Khobar, Saudi Arabia in 1986.

Iran has denied responsibility for these attacks and continues to accuse the U.S. of attempting to steal their money.
