Russia to receive intelligence from Lebanon, Hizballah for Syria war

Just one day after a top CIA official visited Beirut, Russia announced that it will receive intelligence information from the  Lebanese air force as well as military, tactical and ground data from Hizballah to boost its military operations in Syria, reports said Thursday. Lebanon's air force will provide Russia with data on its flights while Hizballah is to inform Moscow of the locations of its positions and the movements of its fighters so the Russian military will not accidentally fire on them, according to the reports.
The announcement came less than 24 hours after David Cohen, deputy head of the CIA, visited Beirut and met with senior Lebanese defense and intelligence officials to discuss the operational needs of the country's intelligence and security services.
