Hadid was founded in 1949 as a kibbutz by Yemenite Jewish immigrants, later joined by immigrants from Rumania. In 1950, it was reorganized as a moshav affiliated with the Hapoel HaMizrachi movement.[3] The site was about 2km west of the Palestinian village of al-Haditha and the archaeological tel of ancient Hadid.
