DailyMail: Rebels detonated 60 tonnes of explosives packed underneath a large Syrian army base, blowing a hillside hundreds of metres into the air, an insurgent in the operation who provided footage of the attack said today. An Islamic Front commander said that his brigade dug a 850-metre (2,800ft) tunnel underneath Wadi al-Deif base, which is surrounded by rebels but has remained inside government control for the entirety of the three-year-long civil war. The casualty toll from the blast was not immediately known.

How about that for some old school war tactics, huh? Give’em the old bomb in a rat hole routine and film from a distance. Was it just me or did it not look like all they did was blow up an empty hill though?
