JERUSALEM, Aug. 13 (Xinhua) -- The Chinese navy's 11th escort fleet arrived in Israel's Haifa Port Monday, starting a four-day goodwill visit.

The vessels were welcomed by Israeli navy's Haifa base commander Elyahu Sharvit and Chinese embassy officials.

Haifa is the largest city in northern Israel, and the Port located on Mediterranean coastline is one of the busiest in the country.

The flotilla finished in July its four-month international escort mission in the Gulf of Aden and Somali waters, after having escorted 184 ships in 43 operations. A total of 126 pirate vessels in 58 incidents were successfully driven away by the warships.
