Terrorists are getting bolder and bolder against anyone threatening their mission.
On Sunday, Ari Fuld, an American-born Israeli settler and vocal supporter of Israel, was stabbed and killed at a local mall in the West Bank.
Terrorists have proven many times over they are cowards when it comes to carrying out their attacks.
They look for places presenting the least resistance packed with innocents.
In this case, a young terrorist approached Fuld from the rear to stab him in the back outside of a local mall entrance.
Fuld did manage to pull out his firearm and shoot the terrorist, but the damage had already been done.
While the terrorist is expected to recover from his wounds, Fuld was pronounced dead shortly after the incident at a local hospital.
Fuld was well-respected as well as being an open supporter of Israel.
Prime Minister Netanyahu spoke only hours after his death about what Fuld meant to his country.
“In the name of every citizen of Israel, I send my condolences to the family of Ari Fuld, who was murdered today in a terrorist attack in Gush Etzion.
Fuld leaves behind four children.
The terrorist has been identified by Israeli media as 17-year-old Khalil Jabarin.
Several family friends noted Jabarin had told his parents he was planning an attack.
The family told the local media they did inform authorities, but they were unable to locate him in time to stop him.
Local Israeli soldiers confirmed the mother’s account, but it still seems somewhat suspicious due to the timing.
Apparently, the attack took place while the mother was telling authorities about it.
Authorities continue to investigate the incident.
