Greek police arrested in a hotel at Aspropyrgos, a small town in Attica, a 49-year-old man who arrived in Greece three days ago from Egypt and is considered a suspect for supplying weapons to Hezbollah. He might have been involved in illegitimate arm deals with Libya, Lebanon and Syria, and he is considered a quite important dealer for missiles, antimissile systems and small gans, ammunition etc He held both USA and Jordanian citizenship and his permanent residence was in Egypt. He was under surveillance probably after a tip from the American authorities
According to unconfirmed information, he might have been employed as an informant for an intelligence service (probably American) and he had been making arm deals in order to gather relevant evidence on the way muslin groups get their ammunition. According to those sources, he might became a target rather than a friendly “insider“ when he started making deals for himself without any notification of the intelligence.
