1. In Israel the operation is knows as Mivtzah Yehonatan (Operation Jonathan), named after the commander who died in the field.
2. Idi Amin made sure to execute 12 of his own soldiers for suspected collaboration with Israel, an elderly Israeli-British lady hostage who was hospitalized along with some doctors and nurses trying to protect their patient, hundreds of Kenyans because Kenya allowed the Israeli C130s to land and refuel there. He truly was the "mad dog" of Africa.
3. The Israeli move is available on YouTube,
