Israel Police and the Israel Security Agency (Shabak) have interrogated over 20 Israeli citizens suspected of crimes against State security, violations of the law supervising security exports, money laundering, and additional economic crimes.
According to the report, some of the suspects are former security industry employees.
During the Shabak investigation, it was discovered that the suspects were involved in illegally developing, manufacturing, conducting experiments, and selling cruise missiles for an Asian country.
The investigation also revealed that the suspects received instructions from sources connected to that foreign country, in exchange for large sums of money and additional benefits.
The Shabak investigation revealed that the connection between the suspects and their connections in the Asian country was kept secret in attempts to disguise the missiles' destination.
According to Shabak, the investigation revealed much information regarding the foreign sources' methods of conduct with the Israelis, including the use of various techniques to hide and disguise the transactions and the payment for them.
"This saga illustrates the potential damage to the State's security inherent in illegal transactions conducted by Israeli citizens with foreign sources," they said. "Included in this is the concern that these technologies will be leaked to countries hostile to Israel."
Materials from the investigation are now being transferred for examination by the Economic Department of the State Prosecutor's Office.
