General Avraham (Bren) Adan Dead at the Age of 86


General Avraham Adan passed away, Thursday evening, at the age of 86, at his home in Hod Hasharon, northeast of Tel Aviv. General Adan is remembered as the one who waived the "Flag of Ink" over Eilat in the War of Independence.

His death followed the 39th anniversary of the start of the Yom Kippur War, when he commanded 162nd Division, nicknamed "the Bren Division", which crossed the Suez Canal.
