Operation Thunderbolt DVD - A Golan Globus Production
It was Sunday, June 27, 1976, when armed gunmen from the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, together with some German accomplices, hijacked Air France flight 139, diverting it first to Libya and then to dictator Idi Amin's Uganda. With the world looking on, the terrorists separated the Jewish and Israeli passengers from the others, threatening to kill them all if their Palestinian comrades in Israeli jails were not quickly released. Israel of back then was not in the habit of yielding to terrorist blackmail. No international summits were convened. No negotiations with the terrorists were countenanced. Instead Israel reacted - by launching a stunning military raid on July 4, 1976, freeing virtually all the captives and bringing the affair to a sudden and dramatic end.
Based on the real-life incidents at Entebbe, Operation Thunderbolt takes off at lightning speed to bring the riveting story of the ultimate fight for freedom to the screen. A cinematic classic in Israel, Operation Thunderbolt was nominated for an Oscar for Best Foreign Film.
