Mossad: The Raid on Entebbe (“Operation Thunderbolt”)


This is probably the greatest or most famous hostage rescue in history. This is the story of the June 1976 Mossad rescue of Israeli hostages whose Air France plane was hijacked by the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) and taken to Idi Amin’s Uganda in 1976. The hostages were rescued from Entebbe after a spectacular Mossad operation during which Lt-Colonel Yonatan “Yoni” Netanyahu (older brother of Israel’s current Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu) was killed.

This is gripping viewing. Watch on…..
