PM to mark Entebbe anniversary with Africa visit

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is planning a landmark visit to Uganda and Kenya this summer to mark 40 years since the July 4, 1976, Entebbe raid during which his brother, Yonatan, was killed in the legendary hostage rescue operation, The Jerusalem Post has learned.

The trip is expected to be among the issues on the agenda when Kenyan President Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta arrives for a visit next week.

This would be the first visit by an Israeli prime minister to sub-Saharan Africa since Levi Eshkol visited six African countries in 1966.
