The family of a man killed in the Barcelona terror attack are suing Google, Facebook and Twitter for ‘aiding and abetting’ ISIS.

The three daughters of Jared Tucker, who was among the 13 people killed in the Aug. 17 attack, claim that the Internet giants were caught “aiding, abetting and knowingly providing support and resources” to ISIS.

Nypost.com reports: The assault was the worst terrorist attack to hit Spain in more than a decade when a vehicle plowed into pedestrians on Barcelona’s most popular boulevard, Las Ramblas. Thirteen people died and 130 were injured.

The three tech companies, the complaint argues, have “for years knowingly and recklessly provided the terrorist group ISIS with accounts to use its social networks as a tool for spreading extremist propaganda, raising funds and attracting new recruits.”

The suit, filed by attorneys Keith Altman and Ari Kresch in the US District Court in Northern California, seeks a trial by jury and asks for damages.

The lawsuit hinges on the interpretation of a portion of the 2016 Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act, which provides litigants with broad ways to “seek relief against persons, entities and foreign countries, wherever acting and whenever they may be found, that have provided material support, directly or indirectly, to foreign organizations or persons that engage in terrorist activities against the United States.”

Facebook announced recently that it will use artificial intelligence to spot images, videos and text related to terrorism. YouTube, owned by Google, has also said it will be removing terrorist-related content much faster.
