Palestinian factions applauded the terror attack Sunday that killed Israel-American Ari Fuld, The Jerusalem Post's sister publication Maariv reported.

"We welcome the stabbing attack in Bethlehem," said Hamas spokesperson Abd Al-Latif Kanaoueu. "It came at the cost of sacrificing our people in the March of Return, emphasizing the importance of Jerusalem's Intifada and the right of our people to all forms of resistance against the occupation."Islamic Jihad praised the "heroic stabbing against the settlers' terror in Bethlehem," adding that "this is a natural response to Jewish terror, aggression, and its crimes against Arabs, the land, and our holy places."

The statement said that "we applaud our people in the West Bank. We call for a general confrontation against the occupation and more attacks on settlers."

Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, the military wing of Fatah, and the Resistance Committees also welcome the attack, stressing the necessity of resistance "against settlements, Judaization of the land, and occupation crimes.".
