US Court Orders Iran & Syria to Pay $191 Million for Murder of Ari Fuld


The U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia has ordered that Iran and Syria pay $191 million for their involvement in the murder of Ari Fuld, an American-Israeli who was stabbed to death by a Hamas terrorist in Judea and Samaria five years ago.

“The stabbing that killed Mr. Fuld was a tragic event, and money cannot fully account for the harm that these defendants have inflicted,” Judge Royce Lamberth wrote in her ruling, as quoted by JNS.

“Iran and Syria have, once again, provided material support to Hamas and thereby facilitated the savage murder of a husband, father, son, and brother to these plaintiffs. The court’s ruling today cannot erase plaintiffs’ pain, but it can begin the process of affording them due compensation for their loss,” she wrote.

In 2018, an Arab teenager stabbed Fuld outside the Harim Mall at the Gush Etzion Junction. Despite his severe injuries to his neck and back, Fuld demonstrated remarkable courage by heroically chasing and shooting at his attacker to prevent further casualties. After the confrontation, Fuld collapsed and was quickly attended to by emergency medical personnel. Despite efforts to save him, he succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead.

The Hamas terrorist, identified as Khalil Jabarin from the village of Yatta Jabarin, was arrested and given a life sentence in 2020.

Fuld was a fourth-degree black belt who served in an elite unit of Israeli paratroopers. He was well-known on social media for his pro-Israel advocacy, as well as being a JBN contributor. He worked for an organization that supports Israel Defense Forces (IDF) soldiers and was known to give care packages to IDF soldiers fighting in Gaza.
