Greek authorities have intercepted arms shipments apparently sent by an unnamed Israeli and intended for Iran, in violation of international sanctions, the Greek newspaper Kathimerini reported.

Greek officials, working together with the American Homeland Security Investigations agency, uncovered two shipments of spare parts for F4 Phantom jets in December 2012 and again in April 2013, according to the newspaper, which claimed to have a copy of the investigation report.

A Greek court ordered the shipments confiscated and transferred to the Americans. The shipment reportedly originated in the Israeli town of Binyamina-Giv’at Ada, east of Haifa, and was sent via a Greek company based in Athens.

Investigators from the drugs and weapons unit of Greece’s Financial Crimes Squad determined the company was a ghost company, Kathimerini reported.

The firm was registered by a British national from the northern city of Thessaloniki who could not be traced.

  1. An Israeli, from east of Haifa? Definitely an Arab in that area. Hang the piece of s*%t, or better yet, Tattoo "I'm an Israeli homosexual" in Farsi on his forehead and drop him in Teheran. They'll find the nearest crane and rope, quickly.

  2. If the shipment originated in Israel then can we still blame the British or an Israeli? Was the British National Jewish? There are lots of bad people in the world whose sole aim is to make money. The Weapons that the taliban uses are mostly (or were mostly) made in America! American weapons are sold to a lot of places and those places in turn sell to our enemies! Perhaps this is the same in this case. In any event everyone (except Iran) is glad the shipment was intercepted!
