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

PM Modi Netanyahu To Formally Rename Delhi's Teen Murti Chowk After Israeli City Haifa

These troops were later co-opted into 61 Cavalry, the only mounted regiment besides the famed President's Body Guard (PBG), which is largely officered by 61 Cavalry. The brigade carried out the victorious assault on the fortified port city of Haifa on September 23, 1918, during World War I. The capture of Haifa cleared a route for the Allies to send supplies to the city via sea. "The sacrifice commemorated at Teen Murti observes its centenary", writes PM Modi in the visitors' book at Teen Murti. Perseverance of the Armoured Corps and especially the PBG have kept the memories of Haifa alive, albeit kindled only once a year.

According to the Ministry of Culture, a "wrong impression" has been built about the Teen Murti Chowk that it has something to do with Mahatma Gandhi.

"Indian Prime Minister (Narendra) Modi is a close friend of Israel and of mine and I appreciate the fact that he will accompany me on extensive parts of my visit", Netanyahu said just before leaving for New Delhi.

"In the presence of the Prime Minister of Israel, we pay homage to the courageous soldiers", Mr. Modi wrote in the visitors' book. Naming this spot as Teen Murti-Haifa Chowk marks this historic occasion.
