Had Ness (Hebrew: חַד נֵס‎) is an Israeli settlement organized as a community settlement, in the Golan Heights. Located adjacent to the Jordan River, it falls under the jurisdiction of Golan Regional Council. In 2015 it had a population of 827.[1]

History[edit]

Had Ness was established by the Herut Beitar settlement movement. Home ownership was approved in March 1982, after the Golan Heights Law was passed in 1981. Families began to move there in 1987.[3] It was named after 3 settlements, Holit, Dekla and Neot Sinai, evacuated from the Sinai Peninsula as a result of the Israel-Egypt Peace Treaty in 1979.[4]

The international community considers Israeli settlements in the Golan Heights illegal under international law.[5]
