CBS: Iran Proven to be Lying About Involvement in Syrian Civil War

Photographic evidence of Iran's revolutionary guard fighting alongside Syrian government


CBS Evening News reported Thursday that Iran had been caught in its longstanding lie about having no involvement in the Syrian civil war, showing photographic proof of the Iranian elite revolutionary guard alongside Bashar al-Assad's forces.

Correspondent Elizabeth Palmer reported Iran's "decisive" involvement had helped turn the tide of fighting in Assad's favor in several key battles and, this year alone, had lent Syria more than $3.5 billion to buy oil, without which the country would likely have collapsed.
