Yossi Sarid, the former government minister and one of the Israeli left’s most eloquent and erudite figures, died on Friday. He was 75 years old.

Sarid, often controversial and outspoken in his denunciation of Israeli policies in the West Bank, headed the left-wing Meretz party from 1996 until 2003.

After quitting politics in 2006, he began writing columns for the liberal daily Haaretz.
