PM: Meir Har Tzion Steeped with Love of Land and People


Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu eulogized Meir Har Tzion, Friday as "one of our greatest heros - a daring warrior steeped with the spirit of love of country and people. Along with his fellow fighters, he paved new paths of initiative and courage in IDF operations, and inspired generations of soldiers who came after him." 

Reflecting on his personal contact, Netanyahu said, "I knew Meir to be modest and introverted, and the few months where he helped me train the soldiers in my unit,  I got to know a unique personality, upon whose shoulders and the shoulders of whose friends the defense force of our people was established. I salute the legendary warrior who will always serve as a model for sacrifice for the homeland."
