Gaza: funeral of a palestinian child killed during clashes

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu offered condolences to the family of terror victim Ari Fuld, hy'd, on Sunday afternoon "in the name of every citizen of Israel".

Israeli warplanes bombed a Hamas position in the east of the Gaza Strip on Friday, according to local sources.

The campaign began as near-daily attacks against Israelis but has since decreased significantly.

Settler spokesman Josh Hasten, who said he had known Fuld for about a decade, said his friend traveled widely to showcase "the beauty and reality of life" in the country.

The Jerusalem hospital that received the 45-year-old Israeli casualty said he was dead on arrival.

A Palestinian youth was shot and injured by Israeli forces on Sunday near the illegal Israel settlement of Gush Etzion, south of Bethlehem in the southern occupied West Bank, after the youth allegedly carried out a stabbing attack.

The Israeli military said it used force necessary to repel 13,000 Palestinians who massed at several points at the fence. Fuld, an American-Israeli resident of the Efrat settlement and a father of four, managed to chase down and shoot his assailant before collapsing.

"When the rockets were falling, that's when he would get in his auto and go down to Sderot", Hasten said.

Friday's deaths brought to 177 the number of Palestinians killed since the sometimes violent demonstrations were launched on March 30 to press demands against Israel. At times, his Facebook account was suspended. The US State Department said that significant efforts had been made to establish a stable peace between Israel and the Palestinians, but the Palestinian leadership had not taken steps to renew negotiations with Israel and condemned the American peace plan even before it was presented.

"He did not hold back on his opinions", Hasten said.
