US intelligence reports have surfaced pointing to a possible collaboration between the Russian mercenary Wagner Group and the Hezbollah militia in Lebanon.
The groups could be poised to open a ‘second front’ with Wagner apparently willing to share air defence systems with the pro-Iranian faction.
An unnamed official told the Wall Street Journal that the system believed to be the Russian SA-22 system, is not confirmed to have yet been sent.
Wagner fighters previously fought with Hezbollah members in Syria against ISIS.
