Assi Dayan in Operation Thunderbolt

Operation Thunderbolt

1977 PG

On June 27, 1976, a plane carrying more than 80 Jews was hijacked by extremists and diverted from Paris to Uganda's Entebbe Airport. In response, Israel sent a team of operatives on a daring rescue mission. Based on the real-life incidents at Entebbe, Operation Thunderbolt brings the riveting story of the ultimate fight for freedom to the screen. A cinematic classic in Israel, the film was nominated for an Oscar for Best Foreign Film.
