Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will be reaching New Delhi as part of the six-day tour to India. 

Immediately after arrival, Prime Minister Netanyahu and Prime Minister Narendra Modi will participate in a solemn ceremony at Teen Murti Memorial to pay homage to the soldiers. The ceremony will also mark the formal renaming of Teen Murti Chowk as the Teen Murti Haifa Chowk.

The three bronze statues at Teen Murti represent the Hyderabad, Jodhpur, and Mysore Lancers who were part of the 15 Imperial Service Cavalry Brigade that carried out the victorious assault on the fortified city of Haifa on September 23, 1918, during World War I. 

In Israel, during PM Modi’s visit, Prime Minister Netanyahu and Prime Minister Modi laid wreaths at the Indian War Cemetery in Haifa.
