The stabbing attempt comes on the anniversary of the stabbing attack that killed Ari Fuld three years ago in almost the same spot. Fuld was murdered by a Palestinian terrorist on September 16, 2018. The Hebrew date was the seventh day of Tishrei which is today’s date. Fuld, a Holocaust survivor’s grandson, was stabbed at a shopping area adjacent to the Gush Etzion junction near Efrat where he lived. Mortally wounded, Fuld chased his assailant, jumped over a small wall, and his legs buckled. After righting himself, Fuld pulled his gun and shot the Palestinian terrorist.
Fuld was well-known on social media for his pro-Israel advocacy and worked for an organization that supports IDF soldiers.
On Monday afternoon, two people were stabbed by a Palestinian terrorist near the Central Bus Station in Jerusalem. An IDF Border Policeman shot the terrorist. The two victims were taken to Shaarei Tzedek Hospital where they are in moderate condition. The terrorist was checked for explosives before being taken for medical treatment.
