    The message: don’t promote terrorism in Israel. An Israeli airstrike has killed Ahmed al-Jabari, the head of Hamas’s military wing. Jabari was reportedly traveling in a car in Gaza City when the vehicle exploded. He is the seniormost Hamas official to be killed in Gaza in four years, and his death comes just days after Israeli officials said that they were considering assassinating senior figures in Hamas. Israel’s security service said in a statement, “He was the senior commander of the Hamas military wing in the Gaza Strip. As part of his status and activity, Jabari was responsible in the last decade for all terrorist activities against Israel from Gaza.”
