Operation Thunderbolt

Operation Thunderbolt is a movie based on the true story of the freeing of hostages from the Entebbe Airport. In the summer of 1976 an Air France jet was hijacked by four men. This jet was flown to Entebbe Airport in Uganda. The hijackers separated out all the Jewish passengers and held them. They then demanded a ransom of the release of terrorists from Israeli prisons. The Israeli government chose instead to send one of their elite teams to rescue the hostages.

The events of Entebbe are true. This story shows the real life events in this movie of the Israeli actions.
