Hundreds at Funeral of Hevron Terror Victim

Hundreds of people on Tuesday night attended the funeral of Avraham Hasno, who was murdered in a terrorist attack near Hevron earlier on Tuesday.

The funeral took place at the cemetery in Kiryat Arba, and was attended by many members of the Jewish community in Hevron, students and educators from the Otniel yeshiva high school where he worked, as well as his friends and acquaintances.

Hasno is survived by his wife Ruth, seven children and nine grandchildren.

Residents of Kiryat Arba described Hasno on Tuesday as a God-fearing social activist who was loved by all. "With a perpetual smile and zest for life he led Torah classes throughout the year and especially during the summer and holidays, all free of charge and on a voluntary basis," they recalled.

An investigation of the attack has found that Hasno  was run over by a truck and fatally wounded after being ambushed by Arab rock-throwers.

A Magen David Adom team provided him with emergency medical care at the scene but could not save him.

Photos taken by Arabs show the truck running over Hasno, after he came out of his vehicle brandishing a crowbar. In one photo, the driver can be seen smirking, and he appears to be clearly aware of what he is doing.

The incident occurred at the Al Fawar junction, southwest of Hevron.

It came not long after another terrorist attack near Hevron left a soldier lightly-to-moderately wounded. The soldier was stabbed by an Arab terrorist while patrolling near the Hevron Hills village of Beit Awwa.
