On June 27, 1976, Air France flight 139 left from Tel-Aviv for Paris with a stopover in Athens. Soon after takeoff from Athens, four terrorists commandeered the flight, diverting it to Libya for refueling. They flew to Entebbe Airport in Uganda where, on June 28th, Ugnadan President Idi Amin welcomed them. A list of demands was received on June 29th, calling for the release of 53 convicted terrorists held in Israel and other countries. The hijackers released some of the passengers who did not appear to be Israeli or Jewish and threatened to kill the rest if their demands were not met by July 1st. As a delaying tactic, Israel agreed to negotiate. In the early morning hours of July 4, 1976, an Israeli force of up to 200 soldiers landing at Entebbe, and rescued most of the hostages. The terrorists were killed as were three hostages and one Israeli soldier, the leader of the rescue force, Lt. Col, Yonatan Netanyahu. An elderly British passenger, Mrs. Dora Bloch, had been sent to a hospital before the raid; her body was later found.
