One Israeli was killed andĀ four were wounded by Palestinians in four separate incidents across the West Bank on Tuesday.

The latest attack occurred near Beit Hashalom in Hebron, when soldiers killed two knife wielding Palestinian terrorists as they stabbed and lightly wounded one solider and then tried to stab another one.

Thirty teens were marching with Israeli flags nearby were not harmed in the incident.

Earlier, in the day Avraham Asher Hasno, 54 was killed in a hit and run truck incident that followed a Palestinian rock attack on his car near his home in the Kiryat Arba settlement.

He stopped the vehicle, got out, and was struck by a truck driven by a Palestinian man, who then drove away.

The incident occurred on Route 60 near the Palestinian village of Al-Fawwar. Magen David Adom paramedics reported finding a man without vital life signs lying on the road next to his vehicle, suffering from multiple wounds. Photos showed how his front windshield and side door had been damaged by the stones.

A MDA team attempted to resuscitate the man, but when that failed, it declared him dead on the scene. The Palestinian truck driver turned himself into the Palestinian police in nearby Daharia, in the South Hebron Hills, claiming that he had hit Hasno by accident and that he had not intended to run him over.

Security forces have launched an investigation into the incident. Hasno was the father of seven children and a grandfather of nine. He ran the kitchen in the yeshiva in the nearby Othniel settlement.

Closer to Jerusalem, at the Gush Etzion junction, a Palestinian terrorist attempted to run over an IDF soldier and an Israeli civilian who were standing near the bus top on Route 60. Both Israelis, one a soldier age 20, and another a man age, 21 suffered light wounds. The Palestinian driver stopped his car then emerged from his vehicle brandishing a knife.

In response, the commander of the Shimshon Battalion, from the Kfir infantry brigade, opened fire on the driver, striking and killing him. A photo of the Palestinian lying dead in a pool of blood with a knife nearby was published on WhatsApp groups.

Both of the wounded were evacuated by Magen David Adom Paramedics to the Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center in Jerusalem.

Earlier on Tuesday, a Palestinian terrorist stabbed and lightly wounded an IDF officer near the West Bank town of Bet Awwa, close to the Green Line and near southern Israeli district of Lakhish. Soldiers nearby shot and killed the attacker.

Magen David Adam paramedics said the soldier sustained a very lightly injury in the attack. The last security incident in that specific area occurred on October 10 in the settlement of Neguhot, when an IDF officer tasked with securing the area spotted a Palestinian armed with a knife seeking to infiltrate the community.

He alerted the local armed civilian response team, which shot the terrorist in the leg. The IDF evacuated him to the hospital.
