"The victory at Haifa led to creation of and sacrifices will not be forgotten in or Israel," he said.

Haifa was under the Ottoman control since 16th century and was one of the last fortified strongholds of the Ottoman army. The 15th Cavalry brigade of the British was deployed during the "Palestine campaign" in World War I to capture Haifa.
