AFP – An Israeli subject to a US federal arrest warrant for allegedly selling American military equipment to Iran was arrested on Monday at Tel Aviv airport, police said.

“A 64-year-old Israeli man was arrested at Ben Gurion airport at the request of the US authorities, who issued an arrest warrant for the illegal sale of US military equipment to Iran,” police spokeswoman Luba Samri told AFP.

A US court had already sentenced the Israeli, who is also suspected of money laundering, to six months in prison for illegally trading US military materiel.

According to news website Haaretz, the Israeli was implicated in two separate incidents of illegally exporting spare parts for F-4 and F-14 warplanes, transactions that have required US treasury authorisation since 2000.

A Jerusalem court was asked to extend a preventative custody order by seven days to allow the US judiciary to prepare an extradition request, Samri said.
