The Israelis have just assasinated Ahmad Jaabari, the man who personally negotiated the prisoner swap last year with Israel. It seems to be the polar opposite of the policy of de-escalation which Israel said it would follow.
Hamas will, no doubt, see it as a declaration of war, so there will be plenty of rockets heading into Southern Israel tonight and for the Egyptians, a big test, to see how they respond to what may be the first large scale military operation in Gaza since the Brotherhood took over.
