I'm confused too, DB. The YT video states that it happened today in Ukraine. As pointed out after the fact, it was indeed from Syria. I've updated the OP to include this.
Things in east Ukraine have spiraled out of control. Moments ago Itar Tass reported that there has been a shoot out at the separatists-controlled airport in the city of Kramatorsk where according to on the ground witnesses, four Su-27 fighter jets have allegedly opened fire at the local airfield. It is unclear who the unidentified warplanes belong to although Itar Tass notes that one of the jets was allegedly taken down, so there should be confirmation shortly. Eyewitnesses also add that there are victims and an ambulance has been sent to the scene.
Itar-Tass also adds that according to the newspaper "News Kramatorsk" three helicopters were circling over Kramatorsk.
Elsewhere, RIA adds that Ukraine troops have now successfully regained control of the same airport.
Here is a photo of one of the fighters seen circling above Kramatorsk.
