Other Israeli military operations may have been more complex or had greater historical significance than Operation Yonatan. And yet, no other operation takes our breath away like the Entebbe rescue.
Even 40 years later, the majestic triumph of the Israeli army is still remarked upon across the globe.
The military strategists and leaders who planned and carried out the operation proved to the people of Israel and the entire world that we are determined to protect our people. No terrorist can defeat us. No distance is too far to overcome. No operation is too complicated.
