IAF aircraft struck a warehouse containing large stocks of weapons in the Gaza Strip overnight Monday.
Palestinians said that the blast destroyed the home of a senior Hamas operative. No one was wounded in the attack, Army Radio reported.
The IDF confirmed the airstrike.
The house belonged to a Hamas official who works with Interior Minister Said Siyyam, a Palestinian security official said. The family was warned in a phone call shortly before the attack that the house would be targeted so they escaped without harm, added the official.
