The idea of renaming Teen Murti road and chowk after Haifa was proposed in the New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) council during Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to Israel past year. PM in a tweet said, "Welcome to India, my friend PM Netanyahu!"

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will arrive in India today, on a six-day visit during which both the strategic partners will aim to further expand ties on a range of key areas including defence and trade besides deliberating on Israel-Palestine relationship.

"It is the 100th anniversary of the end of World War-1. The sacrifice commemorated at Teen Murti observes its centenary", writes PM Modi in the visitors' book at Teen Murti.

"The Teen Murti Chowk was named to mark the role of the three cavalry regiments". PM Modi will break protocol and receive his Israeli counterpart at the airport, a move which was meted out to the former by Netanyahu.

The brigade carried out the victorious assault on the fortified city of Haifa on September 23, 1918, during the World War I.
