Newsweek: What was Bibi doing in Africa?
Times of Israel: No harm, no fowl: Startup to grow chickenless chicken
On July 4, 1976, Israeli Defense Force commandos carried out a counter-terrorist hostage-rescue mission at Entebbe Airport in Uganda, led by Lt. Col Yonatan Netanyahu, who was killed during the rescue (and was the brother of Israel’s current Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu). The operation, which took a week to plan and 90 minutes to execute, saved 102 hostages. Two weeks ago, exactly forty years later, PM Netanyahu visited Entebbe and laid the groundwork for strengthened relations between Israel and sub-Saharan Africa.
