DAMASCUS: State television on Thursday broadcast pictures of "Israeli spy gear" unearthed in Syria, in what it said was proof of Israel's involvement in the armed revolt against President Bashar al-Assad.

The broadcaster showed footage of rocks used to "camouflage" surveillance cameras found on the Syrian coast, as well as recording and video devices to transmit pictures and audio "in real time" from "sensitive locations".

"This is proof of Israel's role in events in Syria," an unidentified officer said in the broadcast.

"Terrorists benefit from the information gathered thanks to this system, and at the same time the Zionist entity's own interests are served," the officer added.

Damascus blames foreign-backed terrorists for the deadly uprising against Assad that broke out in March 2011.

Assad's regime insists that it is the target of a US-led plot aimed at destroying Syria because of its support for anti-Israeli militant groups such as Lebanon's Hezbollah.
