The man was identified by authorities as Avraham Asher Hasnu, a 54-year-old resident of Kiryat Arba and Hebron.
According to an initial check by security forces, Palestinians hurled rocks at Hasnu's car. He stopped the vehicle, got out, and was struck by the truck.
A Palestinian terrorist lightly wounded an IDF soldier and an Israeli civilian in an attempted vehicular ramming and stabbing attack on Tuesday at the Gush Etzion Junction in the West Bank.
After ramming his car into the pedestrians, the assailant then emerged from his vehicle, brandishing a knife. In response, an IDF commander opened fire on the perpetrator, striking and killing him.
Both victims - in their early 20s - were lightly hurt. Magen David Adom paramedics evacuated both of the wounded to Hadassah University Medical Center in Jerusalem's Ein Kerem neighborhood.
The IDF and the Shin Bet intelligence agency arrested Sheikh Hassan Yousef early on Tuesday during a raid on his West Bank home. Yousef is a senior Hamas leader in the West Bank. Security forces arrested him in the Palestinian town of Beitunia, southwest of Ramallah.
Yousef, 60, is involved in intensive activities aimed at inciting Palestinians to commit acts of terrorism, according to the army. The sheikh has been arrested and jailed in Israel on several past occasions. Israeli authorities accuse him of "[fomenting] violence and conflict against Israel among the Palestinian public." Soldiers from the Artillery Corps Ra'am (Thunder) battalion and units from the Binyamin territorial brigade arrested Yousef together with the Shin Bet, and took him in for questioning.
