The Palestinian truck driver who intentionally ran over and killed Israeli grandfather Avraham Hasno near Hevron will not be charged with murder but the lesser charge of manslaughter, military prosecutors have stated.

Hasno, a 54-year-old resident of Kiryat Arba, was murdered last October at the Al Fawar junction near Hevron. After being ambushed by Arab rock throwers, Hasno left his vehicle to chase off his attackers, but was intentionally run over and murdered by Sahban Wael At-Titi of Dahariya, near Hevron.

An Arutz Sheva analysis of photographic evidence of the incident revealed the driver, who turned himself in to Palestinian police claiming it was an accident, ran over Hasno at least twice, in an act of cold-blooded murder. After Palestinian police released him in March, Israel arrested the terrorist.

The terrorist's home is already slated for demolition, as part of an Israeli government policy to deter deadly Arab terror attacks.

But prosecutors at the IDF military court revealed Tuesday that they will not be pursuing murder charges against At-Titi.

The Hasno family were left shocked and appalled after being informed of the decision, and are currently weighing what legal options, if any, they can take.
