On the last day of his visit to Israel, Prime Minister Narendra Modi along with his Israeli counterpart Benjamin Netanyahu visited Dor beach where he was shown the state-of-the-art desalination plan. Both the leaders were seen talking to each other while enjoying the light breeze at the beach.

Last year, India and Israel had signed an agreement on desalination when the Israeli President Reuven Rivlin was in the country. During his visit on Thursday, Modi was also given a demonstration of a mobile water filtration plant at the beach.

Earlier in the day, the Prime Minister visited the Indian cemetery in Haifa were he paid his respects to the Indian soldiers who had died during the First World War. He also laid a wreath at the cemetery that contains the graves of Indian soldiers.

He also unveiled a plaque commemorating Major Dalpat Singh, known as the ‘Hero of Haifa’ for his critical role in the liberation of the city. “I am deeply honoured to stand here today to salute the valiant Indian soldiers, who led down their lives for the liberation of Haifa during the WW I,” Modi wrote in the guest book.

“The exceptional bravery and supreme sacrifice of Major Thakur Dalpat Singh MC, the “Hero of Haifa” and his men, will be remembered forever and continue to inspire generations to come. Next year, the centenary of the battle of Haifa will present another opportunity to mark this enduring bond between India and Israel,” he wrote.

The two strategic leaders signed seven agreements related to space, water management and agriculture. Narendra Modi is the first ever Indian Prime Minister who paid a visit to the Jewish state in 70 years. From Israel, the Prime Minister will go to Germany to attend the G20 Summit.

                      oh no! truth has infinite shades of grey with probabilities and possibilities, credulities and credibiliites, margin of errors, and subjective truth, with deductive reasoning and inductive reasoning, with logic, reason, sophistry, casuistry, and more...what is 100 truth is that modi is the architect of the gujarat genocide of 2002

                              He represents only Bhakts like you so don't expect everyone to heap praises on him.......As for "low level", he should never forget his earlier level from where he began and the " current high level" that he tries to display at our expense !!!
