Entebbe is a city in Uganda on the shore of Lake Victoria. It was the scene of the 1976 Entebbe Raid, when Israeli commandoes stormed an airliner which had been hijacked by terrorists of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine and the German Revolutionary Cells and flown to Entebbe, where the hijackers received the protection of the Ugandan despot Idi Amin Dada. Almost all of the hostages were rescued (one, Mrs Dora Bloch, was away from the main group receiving medical treatment and was subsequently murdered by Ugandan soldiers), and the Israeli force suffered only one loss, that of the commanding officer, Colonel Yonatan Netanyahu, brother of the future Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu
