An Israeli man sustained serious wounds on Sunday in a shooting near a checkpoint in Hebron’s Cave of Patriarchs. A helicopter evacuated him to the Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital in Jerusalem.

An initial estimate suggests he was shot by a Palestinian sniper.

On Saturday it was revealed that Sgt. Tomer Hazan, an Israeli soldier, was murdered by Nidal Amar, who had worked with him at a Bat Yam restaurant.

Amar had lured Hazan to his home in the West Bank, murdered him and dumped his body in a well.

He told investigators he had murdered Hazan in order to use the body as a bargaining tool to free his brother, a Tanzim operative held in Israel for involvement in terrorist activity.

Hazan was laid to rest in a Holon cemetery on Sunday afternoon.
