The Israeli man killed murdered during an Arab rock attack near Hevron early Tuesday afternoon has been identified as Avraham Asher Hasno.

The victim - a resident of nearby Kiryat Arba - 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.

According to Hevron resident Baruch Marzel, the authorities denied Hasno permission to carry a weapon.

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.

His attacker was shot dead by soldiers.
