Two Israeli arms dealers have been arrested on suspicion of trying to sell spare parts for F-4 Phantom fighter jets to Iran, Israel’s Channel 2 news has reported.
The company has been named as R.S.P. Rebuilt Spare Parts, based in northern Israel, Channel 10 reported. Israel’s military censor allowed the publication of the firm’s name on Thursday.
It has been released for publication that Avichai Weinstein and Eli Cohen, the two suspected of attempting to sell the spare Phantom jet parts, have been suspected of such acts in the past, roughly ten years ago.
