I don't think the Tomahawk is able to carry a weapon capable of taking out a concrete runway. They would need fixed wing aircraft carrying specialized bombs to do that. Maybe no stealthy machines available and didn't want to risk losing an aircraft and its crew captured.

I don't think it's that.  I think it was more of a case of this being the least that they could do still doing something, while at the same time being the most they could do without drawing much criticism.
