Police arrested two Energy Ministry officials on suspicion of bribery, fraud and breach of trust on Thursday, according to Israeli media. 

The two were suspected of helping specific energy companies obtain permits in order to receive positions in the companies as well as money in return. 
According a report in Hadashot, four people were detained a month ago for suspected bribery, fraud and breach of trust, which led to a further investigation. 
 
This is a developing investigation.
