Not withstanding the harsh criticisms that Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has leveled at Israel for more than a year, President Shimon Peres, nonetheless felt compelled to send Erdogan a message of condolence on the death of his mother.

Peres, who this year lost both his wife and his brother, wrote in his message to Erdogan that from his own experience he knows the deep sense of grief of feeling like an orphan and that he could empathize with Erdogan's boundless sorrow.

He asked the Turkish Prime Minister to accept his profound condolences and sympathy.
