The Munich massacre refers to the 1972 terrorist attacks at the summer Olympics in Munich, Germany. The Palestinian terrorist organization Black September kidnapped and murdered 11 Israeli athletes and coaches, and killed a police officer in the process.

Of 8 terrorists, 5 were killed and 3 were temporarily imprisoned until released to Libya in exchange for a Lufthansa passenger jet that had been taken hostage.

In response, Israel launched Operation Wrath of God, a series of clandestine activities directed at members of Black September and the Palestine Liberation Organization.
