On September 30, 1985, four Soviet diplomats were captured by Hezbollah in Lebanon.

At some point, perhaps to send a message or because of a dispute, one of the hostages was executed and his body left on a street in West Beirut. The Soviets were furious and mobilized an elite counterterrorism unit to hunt down the kidnappers.
