Former Israeli PM Shamir dies at 96
JERUSALEM — Former Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir, who clung throughout his life to the belief that Israel should hang on to territory and never trust an Arab regime, has died. He was 96.
Israeli media said Shamir died Saturday at a nursing home in the town of Herzliya, north of Tel Aviv.
Shamir served as prime minister for seven years, from 1983-84 and 1986-92, leading his party to election victories twice, despite lacking much of the outward charisma that characterizes many modern politicians.
