President Shimon Peres on Wednesday expressed deep regret over the passing of his "dear friend" former IDF chief of staff Amnon Lipkin-Shahak, whom Peres described as "a true hero, a torchbearer of peace, a rare human being and a wise Jew."

"There is no parallel to Amnon's contribution to the security of Israel," Peres said, evidenced by his having been awarded on two occasions the Medal of Valor.

"My love for him is a true love," Peres concluded.
