The family of Avraham Asher Hasno, who was brutally murdered by an Arab terrorist in mid October, announced on Sunday that a grandson has been born to the terror victim.

"In a fortuitous hour a new grandson has been born to us," read a statement put out by the family. "Avraham Asher Hasno lives, Avraham's way continues even now the continuity of the nation of Israel, the eternal nation."

The new baby was named Avraham Hasno after his murdered grandfather, who he tragically will not get to know growing up.

Hasno, a resident of Kiryat Arba who was recognized as a terror victim in early November, was lured out of his car by an Arab rock ambush, at which point an Arab truck driver ran him over and murdered him.

An Arutz Sheva analysis of photographic evidence of the incident reveals the driver, who turned himself in to Palestinian police claiming it was an accident, ran over Hasno at least twice in cold-blooded murder. Arab residents cheered and whistled as paramedics unsuccessfully tried to save the victim's life.

Responding to reports of the brutal torture suffered by Jewish suspects in the Duma arson case, last December Hasno's widow Ruti noted that her husband's killer remains at large and the authorities are doing nothing to track him down.

Responding to reports claiming the murderer turned himself in and is in a Palestinian Authority (PA) jail, she said, "why don't they say where the murderer is? I'm sure he's out now. They said he was released from the prison of the (Palestinian) Authority and was arrested again, but I don't believe that at all."

"In these past two months I haven't heard a single word from members of Knesset or from security sources regarding Avraham's despicable murderer. We won't let this pass! Jewish blood is not abandoned!," she wrote at the time. She called for Israel's death penalty to be applied to the murderer, saying, "I want them to kill the murderer, so that other terrorists won't be able to release him."
