Full Analysis

This video is perhaps the most interesting, as it helps pinpoint the angle of attack that the Al Farouk Brigade hit from. They started in the northeast, and attacked the southeast corner of the base. Here's a screen shot of the videos map, which, by looking at Google maps, you can see shows the same place. 

As you can see from the video, the large mount is in the background, suggesting that the FSA attack put the mount in a pincer, with Al Farouk pushing west and the other brigades pushing north. 

Clearly visible in this video is the other SA-2 or SA-3 missiles, and the SA-8 missiles in the tubes at the end. The video also gives a clear indication of just how large this base is, and how much equipment was captured or destroyed in the process.
