It was disclosed, Sunday evening, that the Israeli soldier who was shot in Hevron has died of his wounds. His family has been notified. The soldier was mortally wounded, apparently by a sniper who shot at a group of soldiers, and taken to Sha'arei Tzedek Medical Center in Jerusalem, where he was pronounced dead.
There were reports of rock throwing in the area before the shooting. The Israel Defense Forces declared a curfew in Hevron as they surrounded the city in their search for the shooter on an operational and intelligence level.
