This film was about Operation Thunderbolt, a counter-terrorist hostage rescue carried out by the Israelis Defense Force Commandos Unit, the General Staff Reconnaissance Unit (known as Unit 269 and the Sayeret Matkal) at the Entebbe International Airport in Entebbe, Uganda from the night of the 3rd to the early hours of the 4th July 1976.

The operation resulted in the rescue of 102 of the 106 hostages and the deaths of 4 hostages:

Jean-Jacques Maimoni - 19-year-old immigrant from France, shot in mistake by Israeli company commander, Muki Betzer and another commando soldier.

Pasco Cohen - 52 years old, also shot in mistake by Israeli commandos.

Ida Borochovitch - 56-year-old immigrant from Russia, shot by a hijacker in the crossfire between the hijackers and the Israeli commandos.

Dora Bloch - 74-year-old British-Israeli grandmother, was taken to Mulago Hospital in Kampala before the raid, dragged from her hospital bed and shot by members of the Ugandan Army under orders of Idi Amin and dumped at a plantation field, 20 miles (32km) east of Kampala.

Among the dead was the commander of the Sayeret Matkal, Yonatan Netanyahu (known as Yoni) who was shot by a Ugandan sniper stationed in airport tower.

After the operation, Idi Amin also ordered the executions of 245 Kenyans living in Uganda in retaliation for Kenya's assistance in the operation as Kenya had allowed the use their airfields for the Israelis to use for the operation

On the 24th May 1978, Kenyan Agriculture Minister, Bruce McKenzie was killed when a bomb attached to his plane exploded after leaving a meeting with Idi Amin, it was suspected that Amin had ordered McKenzie's murder in retaliation as he persuaded the Kenyan Government to allow the Israelis access to their airfields and had assisted the Israeli intelligence agency, Mossad to provide photos of Entebbe Airport.

Two years later, on the 31st December 1980, a bomb was detonated at the Fairmont Norfolk Hotel in Nairobi, killing 20 people and injuring another 87.

It was suspected that bomber was a Moroccan PFLP member named Qaddura Mohammed Abd Al-Hamid who flew to Nairobi on a false Maltese passport, after the bombing, Al-Hamid fled to Saudi Arabia.
