srael launched a new round of airstrikes in Gaza on Thursday, after Islamist militants fired rockets into Israel, killing three civilians. The attacks came after the Wednesday killing of Ahmed al-Jabari, the top military commander of Hamas, the Islamist group that controls the Palestinian territory. Al-Jabari was killed in a pinpoint airstrike on his car. The U.N. Security Council held an emergency meeting on Wednesday night to discuss concerns that the fighting would turn into all-out war, but took no action. "The message that must be taken from this meeting is the violence must stop," said Indian Ambassador Hardeep Singh Puri, acting president of the 15-nation Security Council.
