Israel have continually struck Syria since the war began, killing many prominent Hezbollah figures and arms depots.
Although the video title says it was an airstrike, the Syrian Ministry of Defense have stated it was surface-to-surface missiles.
Al-Arabiya reported that fires broke out at the airport and that emergency vehicle sirens were heard in the area.
