They are also likely to visit the Sabarmati Ashram, Mahatma Gandhi’s abode in Ahmedabad.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu today said the people of his country were eagerly waiting for the "historic" visit of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

He stated this in a tweet while responding to a message of greeting by Modi.

"Thank you, my friend, for your kind holiday greeting. The people of Israel eagerly await your historic visit," Netanyahu tweeted, which was re-tweeted by the PMO.

Two days back, Modi had tweeted, "Khag Sameach Khaverim". In Hebrew, it is used as a greeting for the holidays.

Modi is expected to travel to Israel some time in the next few months.
