Indian Army Celebrates 75th UN Peacekeepers Day

The Indian Army commemorated the 75th International Day of UN Peacekeepers, today, by paying homage to the fallen comrades by laying a wreath at the National War Memorial, New Delhi by the Chief of the Army Staff, Vice Chief of Army Staff, and representatives from Navy and Air Force, Ministry of External Affairs and United Nations. This is the day when in 1948 the first UN peacekeeping mission, “UN Truce Supervision Organisation (UNTSO)” began operations in Palestine.

Each year on this Day, the UN and countries across the globe pay tributes to the professionalism, dedication, and courage of all men and women who have served or are serving in UN Peacekeeping Missions and honor the memory of those who have laid down their lives in the cause of peace. This year marks the 75th Anniversary of the UN Peacekeepers Day.
