Israeli Statesman Shimon Peres passed on early Wednesday aged 93.
Peres is well known for his tireless efforts in ensuring peace between Isarel and Palestine.
He won the 1994 Nobel Peace Prize alongside Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat, and Yitzhak Rabin, a rival labour leader.
He achieved this feat when he negotiated the Israeli-Palestinian peace deal, which became known as the Oslo Accords.
He was the last surviving member of a group of leaders who witnessed the creation of the state of Israel in 1948, including David Ben-Gurion, Moshe Dayan, Golda Meir and Ariel Sharon, among others.
