Opposition leader Isaac Herzog expressed his deepest sorrows upon hearing of the death of former Mossad chief Meir Dagan on Thursday.

"Meir was an Israeli hero who fought bravely against our enemies and those who wished us harm and worked with the same determination for peace that he so desired," wrote Herzog on his Facebook page.

"The State of Israel owes him a great debt of gratitude for all he did during his service," he continued. "I share in the heavy mourning with his wife, children and grandchildren and friends on the passing of Meir who fought for a long time with the inner strength reserved for heroes," concluded Herzog.

Meir Dagan died at the age of 71 following a long fight against cancer.
