The IDF claimed that the house was being "used as a terrorist infrastructure and, among other things, as a meeting place for the organisation's senior officials".

There were no immediate information if there were any casualities.

Earlier this month, Palestinian media reports had claimed that Haniyeh's grandaughter Roaa Hammam, a medical student at the Gaza University, was reportedly killed in an IDF airstrike.
