A new book claims that Israel supplied weapons to Argentina during the 1982 Falkland Islands War, The Telegraph reported on Thursday.

Operation Israel: The Reaming of Argentina During The Dictatorship, by Argentine journalist Hernan Dobry, reveals that the-prime minister Menachem Begin struck a deal with the military junta that had invaded the Falklands and was fighting the British.

Dobry claims that Begin saw the deal as revenge for the hanging of Irgun fighter Dov Gruner by the British in 1947.
