Mike Huckabee was a friend of the Israeli man who was stabbed in front of a shopping mall in the West Bank on Sunday.

The former governor of Arkansas shared a photo of himself with Ari Fuld, 40, on Twitter and said he was "sick" because of his death.

"Murder pointless and useless today of Ari Fuld in Efrat, Israel," he wrote. & # 39; This is wild! & # 39;

& # 39; Ari stabbed in the back. I was alone with him in July. I'm disgusted by this. This photo reminds me that he deserved better.

Huckabee also wrote that Fuld's murder was a reminder that "there will be no peace until PA stops rewarding terrorists who kill Jews."

The Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, also shared his condolences on social networks.

"On behalf of all the citizens of Israel, I send my condolences to the family of Ari Fuld, who was killed today in a terrorist attack on Gush Etzion," he wrote.

"With his last strength, Ari fought heroically against the terrorist and avoided a major tragedy."

& # 39; Ari was a wonderful father for four children. He was a defender of Israel who fought to spread the truth about Israel. May his memory be a blessing. & # 39;

The official Palestinian news agency WAFA described the murderer as a & # 39; young man & # 39; from the village of Yatta in the West Bank. He was shot by a civilian after the attack.

The report says that the teenager was not seriously injured.

The incident took place at the intersection of Gush Etzion south of Jerusalem and Bethlehem, according to the Israeli army, which provided the details of the stabbing.

The video images shared on social networks show the attacker approaching Fuld near the entrance to the mall and stabbing him.

He is then pursued by civilians and shot nearby.

The stabbing comes a few days after the Israelis shot a Palestinian with a knife at the checkpoint.

There are regular frictions between Israelis and Palestinians at the crossroads, which is near an important block of Israeli settlements and has been the scene of numerous attacks.

A wave of Palestinian knife attacks against Israelis broke out in 2015, but since then they have become sporadic.

On September 3, a Palestinian man wielding a knife approached an Israeli military checkpoint near the hard-line Kiryat Arba settlement in the Hebron area and was shot dead by soldiers, according to the army.

There is concern that tensions between Israelis and Palestinians will increase this month, as Jews celebrate their holidays and make more visits to the holy sites.
