JERUSALEM: The Israeli military said on Saturday that it bombed the home of Khalil al-Hayeh, a top leader of Gaza's ruling militant Hamas group.

The military alleged that the home served as part of what it said was the militant group's "terrorist infrastructure." 

Al-Hayeh is a senior figure in the Hamas political leadership in Gaza.

His fate after the strike was not immediately known.

Earlier on Saturday, an Israeli airstrike targeted and destroyed a high-rise building in Gaza City that housed offices of The Associated Press and other media outlets.
