The army explained that the building was used to plan terror attacks and served as a base for rocket-launching cells.

Watch: IDF bombs Hamas gov't building (Video: IDF)


Egyptian Prime Minister Hisham Kandil met with senior Hamas figures in the building on Friday during his snap visit to Gaza.


Following the attack Haniyeh tweeted: "The Zionists believe their attack will weaken us, but the opposite is true. It only strengthens our determination to liberate Palestine and increase deterrence in the face of the Zionist settler until we achieve victory."


Hamas spokesman Ihab Al Ghussein said following the attack that "Israel believes this will weaken us, but it only gives us more power and determination."


Israeli aircraft bombed three key Hamas buildings overnight. Apart from the government building, jets targeted a police station in Gaza City and a structure belonging to Hamas' internal security service.


Despite the attacks, dozens of rockets have been fired toward south Israel overnight and during the early morning hours.
