Two caches of spare parts for F-4 Phantom jets reported to have been sent by a ghost company near Haifa
Greek officials, working together with the American Homeland Security Investigations agency, uncovered two shipments of spare parts for F-4 Phantom jets in December 2012 and again in April 2013, the Kathimerini daily reported over the weekend.
According to the report, the shipment originated in the Israeli town of Binyamina-Giv’at Ada 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.
The report did not name the Israeli thought to be behind the smuggling attempt.
