"Let the IDF win. This pinpoint attack cannot be our final act. Israel needs to continue and hit the terrorist organizations in the Gaza Strip with all its might." 

"The Israeli government must keep up the pressure until it topples the evil regime that is keeping thousands of Israeli residents from leading normal and peaceful lives."

Other Israeli officials made similar comments. Meretz MK Nitzan Horowitz was nonbelligerent, saying:

"Stop the escalation in Gaza. It is a petty bloody circle. War will not solve anything."

Senior Hamas official Izzat al-Rishq said killing Jabari won't "break the will of our people nor weaken our resistance." He accused Netanyahu of committing a war crime to boost his reelection chances. Doing so, he warned, may "cost him his political future."

Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum called killing Jabari a "declaration of war." Revenge was promised. "The occupation has committed a grave crime and crossed all red lines."

"The enemy will pay a heavy price for its crime and will regret the moment it thought of perpetrating it."

Israel launched war but doesn't know how to end it. Islamic Jihad spokesman Abu Ahmed said attacks would follow in hours. He also called killing Jabari a "declaration of war."

Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh called on Arab states to help stop Israel's "barbaric" assault.

An Izzeddin Qassam Brigades statement said, "From this night, the Israeli occupation will be living in hell."

What may be is planned is worrisome. Defense Secretary Ehud Barak called up Israeli reserves. All options are on the table, he stressed. A ground operation may or may not follow.

Haaretz headlined "Israel launches military operation in Gaza." A timeline followed, saying:

On November 14 at 7:37PM, the Palestinian death toll rose to seven. Another 20 others were wounded.

At 7:42 PM, Shimon Peres spoke to Obama by phone. He said Jabari was responsible for "terrorist" attacks. He lied, but both sides accept this explanation.

At 7:45 PM, Abbas called for an urgent Arab League meeting.
