Two Israeli arms dealers were arrested on suspicion of  selling military aircraft parts to Iran, Channel 2 reported.

Avihai Weinstein and Eli Cohen were said to be under  investigation by the Israel Police and the Defense Ministry’s security  investigation arm. The police would not confirm the report to The Times of  Israel, but said the matter was familiar to them but could not comment further  because it was under investigation by foreign law enforcement agencies.
