Former Mossad intelligence agency director Yossi Cohen is suspected of sharing classified information with a flight attendant with whom he was in close contact for the past two years, Channel 13 reports.

A complaint has been filed with the Justice Ministry, which is being reviewed by the attorney general, the television report says.

Cohen flatly denies the allegations, telling the network: “There is no flight attendant, there is no close relationship, the attorney general has not contacted me” about the complaint.
