On the morning of july 4, 1976, israeli commandos raided entebbe airport (old airport) to free 102 israeli hostages taken after a plane hijack by the palestinians. The raid cost amin 20 of his soldiers. One hostage, 75-year-old dora bloch, who had been hospitalised at mulago, was picked up by maj. Farouk minawa of the state research bureau and capt. Nasur ondoga, amin’s chief of protocol. She has never been seen again
After the humiliation at the hands of the israelis, amin asserted his authority through further indiscriminate killings in parts of uganda.
