A worker at a top-secret Israeli installation and a relative have been detained on suspicion of giving classified information to a foreign agent, Ynet reports.

The two men, both in their twenties were arrested last week after one of them reportedly met with the agent in Egypt’s Sinai, the report says.

The men are residents of the Jerusalem area and the north.

Ynet reports on the story after appealing to a court to partially lift a gag order on the case.
