The Egypt Muslim Brotherhood’s political arm, the Freedom and Justice Party, have issued a statement condemning the killing of Ahmed Al-Jaabari, saying:
The Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) strongly condemns the assassination by Israeli occupation forces of Qassam commander Ahmed Jaabari, a crime which should see a fast Arab and international response to stop a wave of similarly bloody massacres against the Palestinian people besieged in the Gaza Strip, and which are being used by the Israeli government for leverage in political conflicts raging within Israel.
Today's bombing in Tel Aviv is reminiscent of six years ago and could mark a serious escalation in the conflict.
A truce in Gaza suits all sides but none of the groups seem interested in a long-lasting solution.
A complex system of air defences has been instrumental in protecting Israel's population from incoming rockets.
