Former enemies, now allies, unite at 99th anniversary of the Battle of Beersheba

They fought each other in the First World War, and some fought each other again in the Second World War, but on Monday, military attaches and diplomats of their countries, together with representatives of the Australian and New Zealand contingents of the Multinational Force and Observers, and UN Truce Supervision Organization participated in a series of ceremonies honoring those who fought and died for their countries.

The two main ceremonies were organized by the Australian Embassy in conjunction with the Municipality of Beersheba; and a third ceremony was organized by the municipality in conjunction with the Turkish Embassy.
