Shimon Peres was noticeably moved at his 93rd birthday celebration this week in Israel. 

The ex-Israeli president was given a surprise party during a lecture, with hundreds of soldiers and officers of the Military Intelligence Research Division in attendance. 

The soldiers sung ‘happy birthday” on stage before they presented him with a cake that had two candles showing the number 93.

Head of Research Gen. Dror Shalom bestowed the statesman with a shofar on behalf of the IDF, calling Peres ‘’one of the most influential actors in national security.’’

Peres thanked the soldiers, saying: ‘’I am very proud of the army and proud of its commanders. They are the best gift I could ask for.”
