Israel PM Benjamin Netanyahu arrives in India for six-day visit

Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi paid tributes to the martyred soldiers at the Teen Murti Haifa Chowk. Netanyahu and PM Modi will also hold delegation level talks.

Both the leaders will lay a wreath, and signed the visitor's book in their mother tongue. Though there are various accounts of this 1918 battle, all narrate the fearless valour with which the lancers undertook the assault drive away the force of Ottoman Turks, Germany, Austria and Hungary.

The liberation of Haifa cleared a supply route for the Allies to the city through the sea. A large number of Indian soldiers of the 15th Imperial Service Cavalry Brigade died during the battle to free the city and almost 900 were buried in Israel.

In July previous year, Modi visited Israel as the first Indian Prime Minister since the establishment of bilateral ties in 1992. "The sacrifice commemorated at Teen Murti observes its centenary", writes PM Modi in the visitors' book at Teen Murti.

September 23 is celebrated as Haifa Day in India and Israel every year as a mark of respect for the soldiers who lost their lives in the battle and to mark the end of 400 years of Turkish control over the city. In 2015, senior RSS functionary Indresh Kumar had proposed to acknowledge the role played by the three Indian regiments of British Army in the Battle of Haifa in 1918.
