"I took part in the decapitation of 10 Iraqis, all of them policemen," a man, who gave his name as Muhammad Hamud Muhammad Mussa and said he was Sudanese, told the US-financed Iraqiya television station.
Mussa's "confession" came in one of three programmes this week in which men detained by security forces were brought forward one by one to tell a police interviewer of their alleged crimes.
There was no way to verify the statements or the identities the men gave, and the Syrian government has denied the claims.
"The cell that I ran was made up of Sudanese and Egyptians split into two groups, one of which specialises in beheadings and the other in planting bombs," he said.
"This is irrefutable proof of the involvement of Syrians who do not want a stable Iraq so that they won't be the next target of the Americans," said Jawad Haidar, a 26-year-old shopkeeper from Baghdad's Karrada district.
But Khalid Ahmad, a 40-year-old taxi driver, had a different interpretation: "It's simply another way for the Americans to put more pressure on Syria."
