Avigdor Lieberman spoke briefly at the ceremony to commemorate the 1976 operation that claimed the lives of the brother of the current Israeli prime minister, three hostages and the two German and two Palestinian hijackers. About a third of the passengers aboard the flight were Israeli or Jews from other countries. Staff from the airline also laid a wreath at close to a plaque commemorating the event. Lieberman said that Israel had been fighting terrorism for 65 years and would continue to be a strong state to protect its citizens.
