Egypt recalled its ambassador over Israels hit on a car in Gaza City on Wednesday that killed Ahmed Jaabari and his bodyguard, and Islamic militants responded by saying the Jewish state had opened the gates of hell. The attack was followed by about 60 strikes in Gaza that killed another six people and wounded 90 more, according to Hamas. The security council met representatives from the Israeli and Palestinian missions in a closed session in New York yesterday morning, diplomats said. Israel earlier warned that its operation targeting militant groups in Gaza, which comes as the Jewish state prepares for general elections in January, was only beginning. If it becomes necessary, we are prepared to expand the operation, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in a televised address on Wednesday, after consulting his security cabinet. Defence Minister Ehud Barak said the operation was to strengthen Israels deter rence, damage militant groups rocket-firing capabilities and stamp out attacks on Israel. We are at the beginning, not end of this action, he said. It wont be a quick fix. The US backed Israels right to defend itself and condemned recent Palestinian attacks. Jaabaris death sparked fury in Gaza City, with hundreds of members of Hamas and its armed wing chanting for revenge. UN chief Ban Ki-moon held talks with Netanyahu and Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi and urged the Israeli leader not to provoke a new cycle of bloodshed. Britain urged restraint and Russia said it was concerned. NEWCHINA LEADER CHINA: Xi Jinping has become the leader of China by securing the Communist Partys top spot. The state Xinhua News Agency yesterday confirmed Mr Xis elevation to party general secretary. Mr Xi also was appointed head of the commission that oversees themilitary. The selection of Mr Xi follows a pivotal party congress that underlined the communists determination to remain firmly in power. ABORTIONDEBATE DUBLIN: The debate over legalising abortion in Ireland has flared after the government confirmed a woman in the midst of a miscarriage was refused an abortion anddied in hospital from blood poisoning. Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny said he was awaiting findings from three investigations into the death of Savita Halappanavar, a 31-year-old who was 17 weeks pregnant. CLONING JAGUARS BRASILIA: Scientists in Brazil will try cloning endangered animal species such as the jaguar, a researcher says. The idea is to start with an animal that is endangered, or where species numbers have gone down sharply, such as the jaguar, the maned wolf or even the local deer, said Carlos Frederico Martins, a researcher with Embrapa Cerrado.
