A top aide to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas marked the death of former Israeli president Shimon Peres on Wednesday, commemorating the veteran statesman with kind words.

“Shimon Peres was a man of peace, who worked with the Palestinian leadership to achieve peace agreements. He also participated alongside President Mahmoud Abbas and Pope Francis in supplicating and praying for peace," Abbas's diplomatic advisor Majdi al-Khalidi told The Jerusalem Post. "His passing is certainly a great loss for humanity and the region.”
