    The rationale or justification for such targeted attacks would have to be to make it personally too risky to allow the rocket fire to continue.

    If, in fact, this report is  accurate -- that there were some actual negotiations and Jabari was on aboard with enforcing a cease-fire -- it makes pursuing peace actually the more risky course. Why would anyone seriously discuss peace with Israel if they fear that the Israeli leadership will kill them for doing just that?

    Having said that, if Jabari could stop the rocket-fire, then it's pretty damning that he hadn't done it before...and understandable why he'd be on a  target list. Which is not to say that there weren't more nefarious motivations for this attack, but, it's possible that the Ha'aretz report isn't 100% accurate, Perhaps, Jabari rejected the truce and that accounts for the timing.
