7 Days in Entebbe is a crime-thriller film, which recounts the story of Operation Entebbe, a 1976 counter-terrorist hostage-rescue operation. The movie stars Rosamund Pike and Daniel Bruhl. In 1976, two Palestinian and two German terrorists hijacked Air France Flight 139 en route from Tel Aviv, Israel to Paris, France via Athens, Greece. They held the passengers and crew hostage at Entebbe and demanded a ransom of $5 million for the airplane and the release of 53 Palestinian and pro-Palestinian militants, 40 of whom were prisoners in Israel. When all diplomatic efforts failed, the Israeli government approved a counter-terrorist hostage rescue operation by IDF commandos.
