In June 1976, four hijackers took over an aeroplane, along with dozens of hostages, to try and free Palestinians jailed in Israel. Operation ‘Entebbe’ was launched to save the hostages.
The hijackers landed at Entebbe airport in Uganda, where they were supported by the government and personally welcomed by Idi Amin. In a desperate rescue mission, 100 Israeli commandos were flown out in secret to save the captives and stop the terrorists.
An incredible true story, ‘Entebbe’ is directed by the producer of ‘Narcos’ and stars Daniel Bruhl, Rosamund Pike and Eddie Marsan.
