Israel hits Haniyeh’s house

Israeli missile strikes on the Gaza Strip hit the Palestinian Authority prime minister’s house. The missile hit Ismail Haniyeh’s residence in the Shati refugee camp just before midnight Thursday. The Associated Press quoted Israeli officials as denying that Haniyeh was a target, instead saying the structure was a Hamas structure. No one was injured in the attack.Haniyeh is a leader of Hamas, the terrorist group which leads the P.A. government and which is behind the recent intensification of rocket attacks on Israel’s south. Another Israeli target was a money changing store in Gaza City that Israel said is used as a conduit to fund terrorist attacks. The missile attacks resumed Friday morning.
