Legendary IDF soldier Meir Har-Zion dies at 80
Meir Har-Zion, one of the most esteemed IDF warriors in Israel's history, passed away Friday at the age of 80.


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)
