Amos Hadar, an MK in the eighth and ninth Knessets and former director-general of the Moshavs Movement, passed away on Sunday at age 90 and was buried in Nahalal.

Hadar was former defense minister Moshe Dayan's cousin and former finance minister Yigal Horowitz's brother.

Before becoming an MK in 1974, Hadar joined the Hagana, fought in the British Army during World War II, and was a platoon commander in the War of Independence, righting in battles in the Jordan Valley and Mishmar Haemek. He served as director-general of the Moshavs Movement from 1982-1985.

Hadar is survived by one of his two sons, eight grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.
