The delegation also visited the old terminal in Entebbe, where the military operation to free the hostages, took place. Dr. Netanyahu said Kaddish and lit a memory candle in honor of Yoni.
The items included books Yoni gave to Yosef, the unit's shirt, a sleeping bag, gloves and a compass.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called Damascus Gate both a symbol of terrorism and the fight against it.
The first English biography of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spills the beans on the longtime statesman.
The evening was especially symbolic for Netanyahu whose older brother Yonatan “Yoni” was killed while leading the Entebbe raid.
Four decades later, terrorism is no less a scourge than it was then.
The Netanyahu brothers went to Cheltenham High School outside Philadelphia before returning to Israel.
Over the years some of Netanyahu's detractors have accused him of using his brother's story for his own political benefit.
Surely in the second decade of the 21st century, when the world is infested with all sorts and forms of terrorists, the lessons of Entebbe are needed even more.
The ceremony marks 39 years since Yoni Netanyahu's fall in a courageous effort to save the live of hostages held in Entebbe, Uganda.
