The Times of Israel reports: Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein on Sunday night paid condolence visits to the relatives of Ari Fuld, an American Israeli man who was killed in a terror attack earlier in the day, shortly before his funeral.

Fuld, a 45-year-old father of four from the Efrat settlement, was stabbed to death shortly before noon on Sunday by a Palestinian teenager. Despite his wounds, Fuld chased and shot at his attacker before collapsing to the ground. He was rushed to Jerusalem’s Shaare Zedek Medical Center in serious condition. After resuscitation efforts failed, doctors there pronounced him dead.

The terrorist, identified as Halil Yousef Ali Jabarin, aged 17, from the southern West Bank village of Yatta, was shot by Fuld and another armed civilian at the scene and taken to Hadassah Hospital Mount Scopus in moderate condition with multiple gunshot wounds, hospital officials said.
