Opposition leader Tzipi Livni visited the Efrat home of terror victim Ari Fuld on Monday. Fuld was murdered in a terrorist incident on Sunday at the Gush Etzion Junction.

"I came to comfort and embrace the family of Ari Fuld, a hero who in his last moments fought and saved the lives of others," Livni said. "It is important to me to stress to the family that even if we have disagreements, we are all partners in our love for the people of Israel and the land of Israel. I share in their pain from the terrible loss and the anger at the terror which we're all united in fighting."

Thousands gathered to mourn Ari Fuld from late Sunday night into early Monday morning in Kfar Etzion, a religious settlement in the West Bank. 

A father of four, Fuld stood between the junction’s mall and the Rami Levi supermarket when he was stabbed in the back by Khalil Yusef Ali Jabarin, 17, from the city of Yatta in the South Hebron Hills.

Mortally wounded, Fuld chased his Palestinian attacker, jumping over a short stone wall and shooting him, before collapsing. Evacuated to Jerusalem’s Shaare Zedek Medical Center, he succumbed there to his wounds.

A dual citizen of Israel and the United States, Fuld, 45, lived in nearby Efrat and had been shopping in the mall at the time of the attack.
