More unverified amateur video is said to show Syrian troops driving through the streets of Daraa, as government attacks move from the air to the ground.
The restive southern region is where the uprising began in March and it has been the site of intense clashes between troop and army defectors over the past week.
There are also reports of a ground assault being carried out by security forces in the besieged city of Homs.
Troops are now using automatic rifles and machine guns, according to Syrian activists.
