Palestinian stabs and kills Israeli civilian in Gush Etzion Junction

B’Tselem expresses its deep sorrow over the killing of Ari Fuld, a 45-year-old husband and father of four who lived in the settlement of Efrat in the Bethlehem district. He was fatally stabbed today at the Gush Etzion junction by a Palestinian from the town of Yatta, and died of his wounds in Shaare Zedek hospital in Jerusalem. B’Tselem conveys its sincerest condolences to the Fuld family. The deliberate targeting of civilians undermines every moral, legal and human standard. B’Tselem strongly condemns any and all deliberate attacks against civilians and calls once again on politicians and leaders to act responsibly and avoid fanning the flames of violence.
