Footage from Syria appears to show the extent of Iran's involvement in the conflict-ridden country.

The regime in Tehran says it is assisting Damascus by sending advisers from its elite Revolutionary Guards.

But when some rebels captured a video camera belonging to an Iranian cameraman who had been embedded with the Revolutionary Guards, the scope of Iran's covert activities in Syria became clear.
