The military wing of Hamas said in a statement that the assassination "has opened the gates of hell".
Israel's military said the strike was the "start of targetting Gaza militants", according to AFP.
Witnesses say Jabari was travelling in his vehicle in Gaza City when his car exploded.
Jabari is the most senior Hamas official to be killed since an Israeli invasion of Gaza four years ago. He has long topped Israel's most-wanted list, the Associated Press reported.
Israeli officials had said in recent days that they were considering assassinating top Hamas officials following a wave of heavy rocket fire from the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip.
Israel's Shin Bet domestic intelligence service confirmed it had carried out the attack, saying it had killed Jaabri because of his "decade-long terrorist activity".
"One citizen was killed and another moderately injured in a Zionist strike on a car in Gaza City," spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra told AFP.
Meanwhile, an Israeli official said they may try to topple President Mahmoud Abbas if he carries out a plan to ask the United Nations this month to upgrade the status of the Palestinian Authority.
The upgrade would give the Palestinians a place in the world body akin to that of the Vatican short of full membership as a sovereign state but as close as they can get without the full recognition that Israel says can only come from a peace treaty.
A draft document from the office of Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman, seen by Reuters, said Israel must confront this challenge by means that could include "toppling (Abbas) and dismantling the Palestinian Authority".

This is gonna get interesting.
"That's a shame."
Uh oh. Wonder what Barry and Hillary will do about this.
These lowlifes need to get new writers... 'gates of hell - mother of all battles - etc. What a load.
OR members of Hamas could get a life and build something to be proud of and leave Israel alone and leave us alone and quit fighting with everyone... and like grow up.
Hillary will continue to sample wine in Australia and make a video disclaiming anything to do with the bombing; Obamagabe will give an empty speech and go golfing.
These lowlifes need new writers... 'gates of hell - mother of all battles' - etc. What a load.
OR members of Hamas could get a life, build something to be proud of and leave Israel alone and leave us alone and quit fighting with everyone... and like grow up. Take care of your own countries Hamas - show us you can do something other than hate and fight.
Good! Let all these murderous basturds go try to collect their “72 virgins rewards” for killing Christians and Jews. As soon as possible!
Maybe he was driving a Ford Pinto? :)
HEY!!! I resemble that remark - I owned a Pinto and survived (kind of).
“...when his car exploded.”
I hate it when that happens.
..and so it begins.
Daffy’s “line of death” was another good one.
