Israeli jet bombs Gaza home of exiled Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh

Emanuel (Mannie) Fabian is The Times of Israel's military correspondent.

An Israeli fighter jet struck the home of Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh — who lives in Qatar — in the Gaza Strip overnight.

The Israel Defense Forces says the home was “used as terror infrastructure and, among other things, as a meeting place for the senior officials of the organization.”

The military releases footage showing the airstrike.

Hamas has previously said the IDF hit two homes belonging to Haniyeh and his family, but this is the first strike confirmed by the military.
