Lightning striking Entebbe

89
40 years ago, 4 July 1976, was carried out one of the most successful raids of the Israeli special forces on the release of hostages at the airport of Entebbe, located in Uganda. The start of this amazing epic was laid on 27 on June 1976 of the year, when Airbus A-300 of Air France, which flew from Tel Aviv to Paris, was captured by an international terrorist group called Teamo Che Guevara, due to negligence, manifested by ground services at a transit airport in Greece. Initially, there were only four terrorists - two Islamists from the "Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine" and two left-wing extremists from the "Revolutionare Zellen" cells. 248 passengers and 12 crew members were taken hostage.

The hijackers ordered the pilots to follow the Libyan Benghazi, and the leadership of the countries whose citizens were taken hostage began to urgently seek contact with the government of the Libyan Jamahiriya. But the terrorists used a “multi-path” - apparently, two others joined them in Benghazi, who said that it was dangerous to stay in Libya, and a plan should be followed in advance - to make a flight to Uganda after refueling, where to find refuge with dictator Idi Amin , which was done by 28 on June 1976 (the plane landed when there was only fuel remaining in its tanks for 15-20 minutes of flight).

Ugandan dictator Idi Amin.


At the airport Entebbe, at least four other terrorists joined the hijackers at 4 or 6, and they demanded the release of several dozen extremists from prisons in Israel, France, Switzerland, Germany and Kenya. In the event of non-compliance, the terrorists threatened 1 July to blow up the plane with all the hostages. The governments of several countries immediately began to try to negotiate with Amin, although it turned out that the Ugandan authorities are on the side of the hijackers, but not against the role of intermediaries. As a result, the terrorists decided to release all non-Jewish hostages, and 260 - 103 Jews (including 83 Israeli citizens) and 77 non-Jewish hostages remained from 20 (of which 12 people were crew members of Airbus, who decided to stay until the end , and several others who offered to let go of children and women instead of themselves or were considered terrorists as Jews).

Immediately after this decision, the airline "Air France" sent another plane, on which the people released by the hijackers were evacuated. It is worth noting that the governments of Israel and France first of all wanted to solve the problem through diplomatic negotiations, but almost immediately, in parallel, a plan of force release was developed. It was for these purposes that the aircraft, which arrived to evacuate the released persons, carried out aerial photography of the area and an inspection of the airport zone. But the path of negotiations was considered decisive at this stage, especially France and Israel tried to influence Idi Amin. In particular, his personal friend, IDF officer Baruch Bar-Lev tried to persuade the Ugandan dictator to influence the terrorists, however, although Amin promised to help, he did nothing.

The only important success that was achieved through negotiations was that the terrorists agreed to move the deadline for the explosion of the airliner with the hostages from 1 to July 4 and, finally, to place people at least in the airport building. This gave people at least minimal comfort and made it easier to assault. It was this that allowed the Israeli special services not only to prepare for the operation to forcefully release the hostages, but also to successfully carry it out.


Flight scheme of operation "Lightning".


In preparation for the operation, an analysis was made of the level of tactical capabilities of the Ugandan army and possible scenarios were calculated. After the plane hijacked by terrorists in Entebbe, agents of the Israeli special services Mossad were urgently sent to Kenya and Uganda, thanks to which they obtained information about the forces of the terrorists and the units of the Ugandan army in the Kampala region. These data were not very favorable - close relations were established between the international hijackers and the Ugandan military authorities, and approximately 20.000 soldiers and more than 260 vehicles were located in the Entebbe zone. However, this was a big, but not the main problem - the 50 of Ugandan Mig-17 and Mig-21, which could have stopped the operation before it began or did not allow it to complete successfully, posed a more serious danger.

The transfer of large forces aviation to neutralize this threat, firstly, it would be immediately noticed on the radar, and secondly, it would be perceived by the international community as another alleged Israeli aggression against another country. In this regard, a less risky plan was developed: a unit of Israeli combat swimmers had to be landed on Lake Victoria, get to the shore, go through the swamps and exterminate the terrorists and free the hostages, demanding that Amin after this free passage home.

However, for several reasons, it was decided to abandon this plan, since It became clear to the Israeli government that the Ugandan dictator is not determined to help and fully supports the hijackers. As a result, a much more risky, literally “on the verge of foul” plan was chosen with the landing of a strike group from a single C-130 “Hercules” transport right at Entebbe airport.


The scheme of actions of the Israeli special forces at the airport Entebbe.


Despite the fact that the Israelis were able to scout the area around Entebbe well enough, the information about what is happening inside the airliner and inside the airport building was very scarce. Then it was decided to create a tactical layout of the terminal, on which various options for action were worked out, which was greatly helped by the fact that the airport building was built by an Israeli firm that provided its plans. Great help was also provided by the released hostages, who gave information on the number of terrorists, their personalities and the approximate deployment of Ugandan soldiers.

Another problem was a very long distance (~ 4000 km.), Which made it difficult for Israeli aviation to operate, and, in addition, in any case, coordination was needed from at least one of the African countries in the region to get an air corridor. As a result, the Government of Israel managed to obtain the consent of Kenya’s President Jomo Kenyaty, the neighbor of Uganda, to cross the airspace and a little later and to refuel.


Military transport aircraft "Hercules" over the sea.


As a result, a group of Israeli aircraft, which was based on Lokheed C-4 “Hercules” 130 transport, accompanied by several Mc-Donnel Douglas F-4 “Phantom” flew into her incredible raid. In addition to these aircraft, the group included two Boeing 707s, one of which was a flying headquarters and coordinated the entire operation, and the other was flying a hospital and landed at Nairobi airport. The aircraft passed along the Red Sea to the south at ultra-low altitudes to avoid Egyptian and Saudi radar, and late at night the first of the Hercules with a strike group landed on the runway at Entebbe airport.


On board the "Hercules" load "Mercedes", which was assigned an important role in the operation.


The ground services of Uganda took the landed board for the liner, which really should have arrived soon, but a little later. In the darkness of the night, a black Mercedes, accompanied by Land Rovers, rolled out of the womb and rushed to the airport building. On the cars that were supposed to imitate the arrival of a high official or Amin himself (who had just flown out of the country), there was an attacking group of Israeli commandos from 29. It was based on fighters from Sayret Matkal, the Israeli counterpart of the British SAS, led by Lieutenant Colonel Jonathan Netanyahu.

Following the first transporter, three more Hercules landed successfully, from which support and reserve groups were parachuted, which consisted of approximately 60 fighters selected from a special company of the Golani brigade and from the 35 airborne brigade Tsakhanim. The purpose of the strike group was to break into the airport building and eliminate terrorists. The objectives of the support and reserve groups were to create an external perimeter to protect the amphibious sides, prevent attempts to help terrorists by the Ugandan army, and, if necessary, assist the strike group and refuel the landed aircraft (if Kenya refuses to provide the airport on its territory).

In general, we can say that the operation was a success - despite the fact that the tuple was stopped by a search post, from the moment of the first shots from the silent weapons less than 2 minutes had passed until the liquidation of the hostage-taking terrorists. As important components of success, it is worth noting that all the hostages were located in the main hall of the airport, adjacent to the airstrip, and also that this hall was not mined. Moreover, only one terrorist was directly among the hostages - the Marxist extremist Wilfried Beuze, who also did not shoot the people around him, but joined the battle with the special forces. The other three terrorists were in the next room and also could not harm the hostages.


The scheme of the attack of Israeli special forces at the airport terminal.


As a result, during the battle, according to various sources, from 4 to 7 of 8 or 10 terrorists who were involved in the capture were killed. Unfortunately, during the liberation by crossfire, two hostages were killed, and another hostage was shot by a special forces officer, as remained standing after the order “Fall to the floor!” (or being in a state of shock, or not understanding the meaning of what was said, because the order was pronounced in Hebrew and English, and he was a French Jew who knew neither one nor the other language ).

After that, the soldiers of the special forces began to take hostages and lead them to transport aircraft. At this time, Ugandan soldiers realized what was happening and opened fire, calling for reinforcements. As a result of this shootout, the strike group leader was killed, while the Ugandans lost people from 20 to 45 and were forced to retreat. In addition to the above victims, 5 hostages and a 4 special forces soldier were wounded (one of whom became a paralyzed disabled person). At the same time, to neutralize the threat from the Ugandan air force, Israel’s special forces destroyed from 11 to 30 the combat aircraft that were at the airbase (which was a significant share of all the aircraft that were in possession of Idi Amin).


Meeting of the rescued hostages at the airport Ben-Gurion.


The total hostage rescue operation took a little less than 2 hours: the first Hercules flew to Nairobi 53 minutes after the fighters landed, and the last Israeli plane took off from Entebbe airport 1 an hour 42 minutes. On-site refueling was not required, since The president of Kenya did, after all, agree not only on the air corridor, but also on the use of Nairobi airport, which undoubtedly contributed to the success of the plan.

The last victim from the captured flight of Tel Aviv - Paris was XORUM-year-old Dora Bloch, who was killed at the hands of Amin's guards, placed before the operation in the hospital due to a critical condition. According to some reports, several nurses and doctors who tried to stop the killers were also shot. However, the greatest casualties from Operation Lightning were incurred by representatives of the peoples of Kenya, who lived in Uganda (which Amin accused of helping Israel). The exact number of these victims is still unknown, but at least we are talking about hundreds of Kenyans who were killed, both at the hands of Ugandan soldiers and at the hands of hostile tribes, who received “blank cards” for pogroms and murders from the Ugandan dictator.

In Israel, the original plan for the operation was called "Thunderbolt" ("Kadur hara'am"), in English - "Thunderbolt" ("Lightning"); subsequently, in honor of the deceased commander of the special forces, the actions in Entebbe became known as "Operation Yonatan" ("Mivtsa Yonatan"). It should also be added that after the incident, African, Arab and socialist countries convened a special UN session on the violation of Ugandan sovereignty, but most countries in the world considered Israel's actions "forced and completely tolerant." The very same operation "Thunderclap" has long become a model of incredible success, based on accurate calculation and faith in victory.

Well, in the end, as a curiosity, one can say that the French crew of the Airbus, who remained voluntarily with the hostages, immediately after returning to France, was reprimanded by the management of Air France and was suspended from flying. However, soon all of them were declared national heroes, awarded "Orders of Courage" ("Ordre National du Merite"), and the aircraft commander Michel Bako also became a Knight of the Order of the Legion of Honor, and, of course, all crew members were restored to work .

          Unfortunately this is a fact. The USSR provided at least some support to Israel only in the first war, in all subsequent periods - exclusively on the side of the Arabs. But starting with 1990x, cooperation between Russia and Israel has nevertheless been established and is on the rise, sort of like.

              Who was responsible for the actions of the Nazis, namely the top of the Reich and the NSDAP, was convicted in Nuremberg in 1946. Logically, everything is fine. The Political Bureau is the people who make political decisions. They were chosen by a narrow circle of persons of the party apparatus, not citizens of the country, do not confuse them. This is not bourgeois democracy. In the Central Committee of the CPSU, there were mainly specialists and curators of industries, they actually got acquainted with the "decisions" of the Politburo, and, due to party discipline, they "approved" using your vocabulary.

    Of course, the operation is wonderful. All participants deserve praise and awards. The crew deserving special respect, remaining with their passengers to the end - this is, indeed, heroic behavior.

    Nevertheless, with a detailed analysis, the assault operation itself didn’t stand nearby with hostage-taking in Budennovsk, the Nord-Ost, and especially Beslan. One militant in the hostage hall who did not kill the hostages - with the three dead hostages.
    The main merit in the success of this operation is the Israeli diplomacy and political leadership. The leadership had enough political will to carry out the operation abroad, and diplomats were able to convince the Kenyan leader to take an extremely unprofitable (in Africa, you could even say criminal) decision for his people. After all, he understood what would happen to Kenyans in Uganda after helping Israel ... Apparently, they bribed.
    But as for the Israeli diplomats, everyone should take an example from them.

      I'm sorry, maybe I'm wrong, but acting in a foreign country is not the same as planning an operation in a building that is cordoned off by its troops. The operations listed by you took place inside the country, where there was time and to tighten the reserves, and to conduct detailed reconnaissance, there was no danger of sudden reinforcement to the enemy, etc.

        I am also not an expert and this is just my amateurish opinion. But in almost all cases with hostages (before the total distribution of webcams), what happens inside a building or an airplane remains a mystery no matter where the events take place.
        and on the account of the reserves - yes, I don’t argue - the operation worked perfectly, it was calculated when they could come up, as a result the strike group had more than two hours.

            I agree, much of what you called was available in 1976.
            I do not argue with you that the Entebbe operation is unique in its own way. But there are many special operations to free hostages that are really difficult. In the same "Nord-Ost" and Budennovsk, would endoscopes and laser systems greatly help?
            And "Thunderclap" stands out primarily because of the active and unexpected actions of special forces in another state.

                So ... Dear Tsoi, to avoid a lack of understanding. Jewish special forces are one of the best now and then. But this does not mean that everything that an outstanding specialist does becomes outstanding. If the great Rastropovich suddenly played a joke from pop-music, this pop-music would not become great.

                What is outstanding in this operation?
                1) Did a group of 60 special forces occupy an airport "guarded" by Ugandan troops for 2 hours?
                2) A group of 29 commandos stormed the airport building, where there were 10 terrorists with dubious combat training? Despite the fact that there was only 1 (one!) Fighter with the hostages, who, judging by the article, did not want to kill the hostages. The building is not mined, etc.

                The only thing that really stands out here is the political will of the leadership, which did not smear the snot, and the excellent work of the diplomats who persuaded the Kenyan leader to make a terrible decision for his people.

                And so any soldier’s work is hard and dangerous, And deserves respect when it comes to protecting Life.

                And now in order:

                And how did these operations differ in terms of intelligence indoors? Did the terrorists have a power dome? Or what?

                You could say it was. The walls of the fully occupied building made it difficult to use the instruments you voiced.

            and I also remind you that 10 terrorists opposed during the assault on the strike group. and only one of them was in the hostage room.
            part of the operation, concerning the Ugandan military, who supported the terrorists, is essentially the actions of the DRG, despite the fact that the DRG is a highly qualified special forces, and their adversary is not even the Arabs ... Which again does not detract from the merits of the Israeli soldiers.

        And also consider the number of hostages - from several hundred to several thousand (Budenovsk), the number of terrorists (about 150 only in Budenovsk), in Beslan there are about 200 CHILDREN held hostage. And "buildings cordoned off by troops", "inside the country", "detailed reconnaissance" are SIMPLY LEVELING. And it is still unknown who was more difficult - the special forces of Russia or Israel.

            Well, to begin with, "Volokolamskoe Shosse" is a book about real Panfilovites, not about the mythical 28 fallen heroes. There is a lot about the training of soldiers and commanders, everyday life, and so on.
            Instead of filming a myth, they would have made a better film from this book. She was highly praised in particular by Simonov for authenticity and realism. If I am not mistaken - still part of the IDF curriculum

            in the light of recent discoveries about PANFILOVETS,


            What does it mean in the light of recent discoveries about PANFILOVETS
            - that on November 16, 1941, at the Dubosekovo junction, there really was a battle between Soviet soldiers and advancing Germans and that six soldiers, including political instructor Klochkov, were buried by residents of neighboring villages?
            - that the fighters of the 4th company at the Dubosekovo junction fought heroically?
            - that the General Panfilov’s 316th Infantry Division in defensive battles on the Volokolamsk direction in November 1941 managed to contain the enemy’s onslaught, which became the most important factor that allowed the Nazis to be defeated near Moscow?


            There is no doubt that the personnel of General Panfilov’s 316 Rifle Division showed steadfastness and courage and they are real heroes AND THIS IS NOT A MYTH

              Only here there was no widely circulated story about 28 Panfilov’s. There was another story, less popular and much tougher - because the real one. The story of a lot more heroic people. A story that has been replaced by popular soup.

            Do you know who said these words? “No matter how radically the Soviet attitude towards us has changed over the next twenty-five years, I cannot forget the picture that seemed to me then. Who knows, would we resist if it were not for the weapons and ammunition that we could purchase in Czechoslovakia and transport through Yugoslavia and other Balkan countries in those dark days of the outbreak of the war, until the situation changed in June 1948? In the first six weeks of the war, we relied heavily on the shells, machine guns and bullets that Hagan [**] managed to purchase in Eastern Europe, while even America announced an embargo on sending arms to the Middle East, although, of course, we relied not only on this . It is impossible to cross out the past because the present is not like it, and the fact remains: despite the fact that the Soviet Union subsequently turned so violently against us, the Soviet recognition of Israel on May 18 was of great importance to us. This meant that for the first time after the Second World War, the two greatest powers agreed on the issue of supporting the Jewish state, and although we were in mortal danger, at least we knew that we were not alone. From this consciousness - and from severe necessity "- we got that if not material, then moral force which led us to victory" [67]

              Alimov or volunteers from the USSR, to that war was negligible. But the Vatiks did not want the USSR to appear in Israel but in spite of it. So becoming, Israel owes its Jewish decision. The USSR (Stalin then) helped by voting at the UN, and did not interfere with the supply of arms from Czechoslovakia, as well as by the way, and the supply to the Arab countries.
              A number of experts believe that these deliveries were decisive for making a decision on the offensive, at the time of delivery, the course of the war was already broken, and the supply of weapons was excellent reinforcement.

                There was not a single volunteer and not a single "advisor". This topic has been studied down to atoms. There is an organization MOFAT (EMNIP) in Israel. She deals with all the volunteers in Tsakhal. so they claim that they "have no data" about such volunteers.

    Fantastic operation! And he read about it, and watched a movie, but still the feeling of FANTASTIC good luck did not leave me. A swift and in a good way brazen operation, in the conditions of TOTAL EXCELLENCE of the enemy (Amin’s troops), practically speaking on the side of the hijackers. Conducted simply brilliantly. The training and courage of the Israeli special forces is simply beyond. I can compare in level with the capture of Amin’s palace in Kabul. Not in essence, but in spirit, swiftness and ... effectiveness. IMHO, the Israelis were still harder, they had to save the hostages, and not shoot at everything that moves.

    Another important point. Hercules then only entered service with the Israeli army. And without them it is not known whether the operation would have taken place. Possibilities for taking off this aircraft from shortened lanes, flight range, etc.

      The article is based on reliable facts. If tactical analysis is done, then, with many unknowns, success was in question. Many famous Israeli generals were against such an impudent operation, because in addition to the 100 hostages, one could also lose 100 special forces soldiers.

      For example, therefore, 4 "Hercules" were taken, since in case of shelling and in case of an unsuccessful landing, it was planned to lose 50% - 2 cars.

      Well, the Ugandan guys acted on top - in fact, at every step they made an erroneous decision.

      You will not succeed in finding false sources, since basically all the memories and nuances were from the participants of the operation from the IDF. The operation is really unique and of course the Israelis were very lucky to play an element of surprise. The Ugandans did not understand at all who attacked them. Muki Betser recalled more than once that they didn’t get worse at the tyrgolot (preparation / rebirth), they didn’t fit in time and everything worked awkwardly, but it certainly didn’t stop anyone and didn’t scare anyone. There is such a sign that if the preparation was not very successful, then the operation itself will be successful, and it turned out in the end.

    Whatever you say here, and the operation is excellent. I saw a couple of films about her! The Israelis are well done !!!
    PS The risk, of course, was enormous and the Israelis were lucky in many ways. Personally, if I were the Israelis' planner at that moment, I nevertheless drove a couple of fighters to Kenyan airfields for possible assistance to the special forces and, in parallel with the ground operation, would "eliminate" all the Ugandan Air Force, and at dawn or the next day, having overtaken additional bombers, bombed the palace of the homosexual dictator and the bases of the Ugandan army - as a "memory" to remember ... Moreover, a wonderful occasion - stinking Uganda helps international terrorists and offends "our" citizens!

      Anyway...

      A special Air Force squadron destroyed UGandan MiG-8 fighter planes at the 17 airfield (according to other 30 estimates, Soviet-made MiG-17 and MiG-21 fighters) out of fear of possible prosecution.



      There is another interesting point ...

      Shimon Peres, then Defense Minister, recalls that the Israeli Air Force commander, Benjamin Peled, wondered if Perez was going to seize only Entebbe airport or all of Uganda?

      I asked: what's the difference? In response, he said that to capture Entebbe, 100 fighters would be needed, but in order to capture all of Uganda, 500 would be needed. I told him that I’ll confine myself to Entebbe, that there’s no need to capture all of Uganda.

    An excellent operation that had an impact on further events. After all, the terrorists realized that Israel would protect its citizens anywhere in the world (the terrorists hoped that the Jews would not get to them for 4000 kilometers). After this operation, the practice of hijacking Jewish aircraft fell.

    Dear Forum participants. Now a lot of documents have been published on the construction of POWER STRUCTURES of Israel and what part did the USSR and Stalin personally take in this construction.

    In the territory of Czechoslovakia trained future Israeli pilots. There, in Ceske Budejovice, tankers and paratroopers were trained. One and a half thousand foot soldiers of the Israel Defense Forces were trained in Olomouc, two thousand more in Mikulov. They formed the part that was originally called the Gottwald Brigade in honor of the leader of the Czechoslovak Communists and the head of the country. The brigade was transferred to Palestine through Yugoslavia. Medical personnel were trained in Wielka Strebn, radio operators and telegraph operators in Liberec, electricians in Pardubice. At the “request” of Stalin, Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia, Romania and Bulgaria refused to supply weapons to the Arabs, which they did immediately after the end of the war for purely commercial reasons.

    In Romania and Bulgaria, Soviet specialists trained officers for the Israel Defense Forces.
    Along with weapons from Eastern Europe, Jewish warriors who had experience in the war against Germany arrived in Palestine. Secretly sent to Israel and Soviet officers.

    The special forces of Israel was created from scratch. Direct participation in the creation and training of commandos took the best officers of the NKVD-MGB ("Stalin's falcons" from the detachment "Berkut", 101-th intelligence school and control "C" by General Sudoplatov) who had operational and sabotage experience: Otroshchenko, Korotkov, Vertiporoh and dozens of others. In addition to them, two generals from the infantry and aviation, the vice-admiral of the Navy, five colonels and eight lieutenant colonels, and, of course, junior officers for immediate work in the field, were urgently seconded to Israel.

    Among the "younger" were mostly former soldiers and officers with the corresponding "fifth column" in the questionnaire, who expressed a desire to repatriate to their historical homeland. As a result, Captain Halperin (born in Vitebsk in 1912) became the founder and first leader of Mossad intelligence, created the Shin Bet public security and counterintelligence service. The history of Israel and its special services “honorary pensioner and faithful heir to Beria,” the second man after Ben-Gurion, entered under the name Iser Harel. Smersha officer Livanov founded and led the foreign intelligence of Nativa Bar. He took the Jewish name Nehimiya Levanon, under which he entered the history of Israeli intelligence. Captains Nikolsky, Zaitsev and Malevanyi “set up” the work of the special forces of the IDF, two officers of the Navy (names could not be established) created and trained a unit of naval special forces.

    In Palestine, and especially after the creation of the State of Israel, there were extremely strong sympathies for the USSR as a state that, firstly, saved the Jewish people from extermination during World War II, and, secondly, provided tremendous political and military assistance to Israel in his struggle for independence. In Israel, humanly loved "Comrade Stalin," and the vast majority of the adult population simply does not want to hear any criticism of the Soviet Union. “Many Israelites idolized Stalin,” wrote the son of the famous intelligence officer Edgar Broyde-Trepper. “Even after Khrushchev’s report at the Twentieth Congress, many state institutions continued to adorn Stalin’s portraits, not to mention the kibbutzim.”

      Uv.Kamarad. That's right, and Visarionych's calculation was that Israel would follow the socialist path, especially since there were all the prerequisites for this and the first aliyah (emigration) even before the revolutionary and the events of World War II. Then all the Jewish people clearly remembered and knew who liberated Auschwitz, Treblinka, Maidanek, who raised the uprising in the Sobibor camp, to whom we owe our very existence. It is true that the authority of the USSR was great. But I dare to assure you now my "tribesmen" will run up and write to you here that all this is nonsense and not true and all this is "red / soviet propaganda" and that everything was wrong and you are lying ........

    What are they doing, you bastards! They invaded the territory of a foreign country, killed soldiers and destroyed state property. Such actions of Israel are aggression against a sovereign state. This is an international crime. It was necessary to create a tribunal and introduce international criminal prosecution of the authorities of the "promised land".
    However, this can be done now for the actions of Israel in Syria and Lebanon. Oblige Israel to pay compensation for destroyed property.

      What are you! And if the citizens of your country were taken hostage by terrorists and stole into another country supporting these terrorists for 4000 kilometers. What would you do. Have they abandoned their citizens to die, agreed to humiliating conditions, or would they have saved their citizens just like the Jews?
      But Uganda SUPPORTED TERRORISTS. Why judge Israel if it saved its citizens? Although he violated the territory of another state, but it was Uganda who supported the terrorists. It was the Ugandan authorities who should be judged, as they assisted the terrorists.

    Based on your logic, it was necessary to introduce the exact same international tribunal against the Soviet Union. Why? They invaded the territory of a foreign state, killed soldiers, destroyed state property. And they did it repeatedly: in Hungary, in Czechoslovakia, in Afghanistan. So what?
    The state protected its citizens in distress. So we would protect our own, as they are. And then some tribe of Yumba-Yumba captures our fishing vessel, keeps our citizens under arrest for months, and we are silent.
    The article is interesting. The operation is performed to the limit. Done with minimal loss. In a similar situation, the Americans failed, being in a better position than the Israelis.

    Easy, no problem. And the United States did not specifically indicate. And I was extremely surprised that speaking of the tribunal, the author of the post did not immediately "move" to the United States. I was extremely surprised. I was just interesting his, but not your reaction, as he would have reacted to such a proposal. Although his and yours, comrade, the reaction was predictable. Like mine in the same situation.

    Would he say that we are "white and fluffy", and the Israelis and Americans are "byaki-buki"? Standards should be one, not double. In general, everyone understands very well that the country adheres to some framework, but in the world, basically, the "right of the strong" operates. The strong man does what he needs for the good of his country, even if it does harm to others.

    The special operation was carried out well. In terms of politics, hundreds of killed Kenyans should be included in the number of victims, but they are not God's chosen ones, who will count them? Politicians managed to buy the president of Kenya, here is the result. In general, in my opinion, in the case of hostage-taking and their subsequent rescue, it is necessary to keep records of the saved, not the dead. While the hostages are in the hands of the terrorists, they are all potential dead.
