Former president Shimon Peres eulogized former defense minister Binyamin Ben Eliezer at his funeral in Holon on Tuesday.

"You were a people person, a person with many friends. An adored commander of the Shaked Patrol Unit and a commander of Judea and Samaria. A fearless warrior against terror," Peres said.

Peres praised Ben Eliezer for "proving that we are not a nation that strives for war, but rather one that seeks peace."

He further stated that Ben-Eliezer had succeeded in the international arena, forming warm friendships with the leaders of Egypt and Jordan, "who listened to your sound advice."

"We came to say thank you for your contribution to the security of the country, for the seeds of hope that you sowed, for your humanity and for your firm handshake," the former president said.
