An Israel Defense Forces drone struck a house in the Gaza Strip belonging to Hamas chief Ismail Haniyeh, Arabic-language media reported on Saturday.

According to the reports, a missile targeted Haniyeh’s home in the Shati area in Gaza City.

There were no immediate reports of injuries, and the IDF did not comment.

Haniyeh resides in Qatar, where he has an office under the protection of the Gulf country’s government.

Earlier in the war, Palestinian media reported that an IAF strike in Gaza City’s Sheikh Radwan neighborhood killed 14 relatives of Haniyeh.

The terror leader’s brother and nephew were killed in the alleged strike, reports said.

In an Oct. 26 address, Haniyeh called for “the blood of the [Palestinian] women, children and elderly. … We are the ones who need this blood, so it awakens within us the revolutionary spirit, so it awakens with us resolve.”
