JERUSALEM (JTA) — An Israeli man charged in the United States with selling arms to Iran was arrested at Israel’s Ben Gurion International Airport.

The man was arrested Monday at the request of the United States and reportedly was attempting to flee the country. He is expected to be extradited to the U.S., where he will be charged with illegal trade with Iran, exporting military equipment without a permit and money laundering, Haaretz reported.

The Israeli citizen, who was not named, was indicted last week in a U.S. court in Connecticut for illegally exporting spare parts for combat aircraft to Iran in 2012 and 2013, as well as illegally exporting military equipment from the U.S. and money laundering, according to Haaretz.

He faces up to 20 years in prison and a $1 million fine.

He was arrested in Israel a decade ago for trading with Iran, according to Israel’s Channel 2, and previously served time in a U.S. prison.
