IDF Strikes Home of Senior Hamas Leader Ismail Haniyeh in Gaza

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) announced that fighter jets targeted the residence of Ismail Haniyeh, head of Hamas’ political bureau, in Gaza. The IDF asserted that Haniyeh’s house served as a “terrorist infrastructure” and a meeting place for senior Hamas officials. No immediate information about casualties was provided.

Earlier reports this month suggested the death of Haniyeh’s granddaughter in an IDF airstrike, though the military did not comment on those claims. On November 4, an Israeli drone also targeted Haniyeh’s Gaza residence. It’s noteworthy that Haniyeh, the political chief of Hamas, has been residing outside the Gaza Strip since 2019, primarily in Turkey and Qatar. The IDF’s actions reflect the ongoing tensions and targeted strikes in the Israel-Hamas conflict.
