Follow Me: The Yoni Netanyahu Story
JULY 4, 1976 ENTEBBE, UGANDA – Led by Lieutenant Colonel Yonatan Netanyahu, crack Israeli commandos race from their airplanes covered by the midnight darkness.
Methodically, they approach a non-descript airline terminal, burst inside, killing the stunned terrorists. Helpless and shocked, 103 hostages lift their heads and gratefully weep at the mesmerizing sight of their saviors.
As the alarms begin to sound, the Israeli soldiers strike with surgical precision and speed — a lightning bolt of controlled, finely rehearsed fury.
It is all over in a few minutes.
Terrorists lay dead.
The hostages rush out to board the transport planes waiting to evacuate the hostages to safety.
During the mission, shots burst in the night — and a sharp cry for help is heard. That cry would become the cry of an entire nation, mourning the loss of its prodigal son…
Thirty-year-old Yonatan Netanyahu has been shot dead.
After leading the dramatic raid to free the hostages at Entebbe, Yonatan Netanyahu becomes the 'impossible mission’s' most tragic casualty.
With his death, Yonatan became an international hero.
