Centenary celebrations to commemorate hundred years of liberation of Haifa in Israel by the Indian troops in 1918 culminates with a grand function in New Delhi today. The Battle of Haifa is being commemorated in Israel, Delhi and Jaipur.

The Indian Army commemorates September 23 every year as Haifa Day to pay its respects to the two brave Indian Cavalry Regiments, Mysore and Jodhpur Lancers, that helped liberate the city following a dashing cavalry action by the 15th Imperial Service Cavalry Brigade.

Taking part in the centenary celebrations to commemorate Haifa Day in Jaipur yesterday, Chief of Army Staff General Vipin Rawat said that Indian Army is capable to deal with any situation. Interacting with Media Persons after the programme, Mr Rawat said that our government’s policy is quite clear.

We strongly consider that talks and terror cannot go hand in hand. Pakistan needs to stop this terrorism and should not allow its soil to be used by terrorists against our people.  The function at Jaipur was the penultimate one to be followed by a grand culmination in New Delhi today.
