In unusually tough remarks, President Shimon Peres responded Thursday to the Burgas terror attack saying that Israel will hit terror nests around world.

A suicide bomber was responsible for the Wednesday terror attack targeting Israeli tourists at the Burgas Airport in which five Israelis were killed, Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borisov said Thursday. The suspected bomber was carrying a US passport believed to be fake, according to the Sofia News Agency.

"It [Israel] has the means and the will to silence terror organizations," said Peres.
