Former Israeli President, Shimon Peres dead at 93

Shimon Peres, one of Israel’s defining political figures who shared a Nobel Prize for forging a peace deal between Israelis and Palestinians, has died at the age of 93, two weeks after suffering a stroke.  

Described as a constant force for generations in Israeli politics, Peres had twice served as prime minister of Israel and later as the country’s ninth president. It is believed that he is one of the last of a generation of Israeli politicians who were present at the forging of the new nation in 1948.

He suffered a massive stroke about two weeks ago and had been on a respirator in an Israeli hospital near Tel Aviv.

Though his conditions improved , it became worse on Tuesday leading to his eventual departure in the early hours of today.

His son Chemi led tributes to “one of the founding fathers of the state of Israel” who “worked tirelessly” for it.
