Har-Zion was instrumental in the establishment of the elite retaliation unit 101 with former prime minister Ariel Sharon, who later described Har-Zion as the "elite of the elite." Former IDF chief of staff and defense minister Moshe Dayan called him "the best soldier ever to emerge in the IDF." (Ynetnews)
