The portion of the money involving Palestinians in the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip was being redirected to programmes between Jewish and Arab Israelis, a U.S. embassy official said.

He was killed at a shopping mall near the Gush Etzion junction that has been the site of similar incidents in recent years.

Hundreds of Palestinians attended the funeral Saturday of a 12-year-old boy killed by Israeli army fire during clashes on the Gaza border. "We were throwing stones at the gate heavily guarded by the israeli soldiers".

He told Israeli peace activists in a meeting in Ramallah two weeks ago that he supports Israel's security, underlining that the Palestinian and the Israeli security forces work together "on a daily basis" and that he and his people "do anything possible so that no Israeli gets hurt", according to Peace Now, whose executive director attended the meeting with the PA president.

Fuld was well known for his social media posts defending Israel and its military and was set to speak in The States over a series of talks as well as launch a new Israel advocacy website in English.

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.

Video footage showed Mr Fuld giving chase and firing at his assailant before collapsing. Meanwhile, the other Israeli settler suffered serious injuries. At times, his Facebook account was suspended. Ari Fuld was a passionate defender of Israel & an American patriot.

Early on Friday, several Palestinians crawled to the fence to throw a pipebomb at troops, who fired back, the military said.

On Twitter, David Friedman, the USA ambassador to Israel and a strong supporter of the settlements, called him "a passionate defender of Israel & an American patriot".

One Israeli soldier has been shot dead by a sniper.
