Israeli military will provide Russia with intelligence information about opposition groups' positions in Syria to facilitate Moscow's military operations, Channel 2TV claimed Wednesday.

A delegation of senior Russian army officials led by First Deputy Chief of General Staff General Nikolai Bogdanovsky already arrived in Israel Tuesday. The visit follows the meeting between Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow three weeks ago.

The report alledged that the countries' leaders agreed on certain points in principle, such as Russian pledge to stop the flow of weapons from Syria to Hezbollah, as well as to allow the Israeli air force to carry out operations freely in Syria, even in areas where the Russian army is stationed on the Syrian coast.

Israel Radio, in turn, reported that Israel will give up its vital intelligence gathered on Syria to reduce Iranian influence in the war-torn country as well as the region in general.
