A joint American-Greek investigation revealed that Israeli arms dealers tried to smuggle spare parts for F-4 Phantom aircrafts to Iran through Greece, in a breach of the arms embargo imposed on Tehran, Greek newspaper Kathimerini reported on Sunday.

 

 

The investigation, conducted by American Homeland Security along with the Drugs and Weapons Unit of Greece’s Financial Crimes Squad, revealed that the operation was carried out in two stages – one in December 2012 and the second in April 2013.

 

In both cases, Greek investigators were tracing the caches containing the spare parts that reached Greek territory.
