Abraham Asher Hasno


Oct 20, 2015 - Avraham Asher Hasno, 54, of Kiryat Arba was run over and killed by truck after his vehicle was stoned by terrorists.

Avraham Hasno was returning home from Otniel where he was in charge of the yeshiva high school kitchen. Terrorists blocked the highway with burning tires and pelted his car with stones, causing him to stop on the side of the road and exit his vehicle. He was then purposely hit by the truck and fatally wounded. MDA paramedics attempted to resuscitate Hasano in preparation for evacuation by helicopter, but he died at the scene.

Residents of Kiryat Arba described Hasno as a God-fearing social activist who was loved by all. "With a perpetual smile and zest for life he led Torah classes throughout the year and especially during the summer and holidays, all free of charge and on a voluntary basis," they recalled.

Avraham Hasno was buried in Kiryat Arba. He is survived by his wife Ruth, seven children and nine grandchildren.
