Trapped in Cairo

Friday night. The Arab Spring is at its peak. Six Israelis are being held at the Egyptian embassy in Cairo. Surrounding the embassy are hundreds of thousands of angry Egyptians trying to break in and lynch them.

Inside the embassy, Israelis are already saying their goodbyes, while Israel’s government is planning its rescue mission.

For the first time, the heroes of the event return to that dramatic night, with exclusive security footage from inside the building – where only one door separates them from death.

Get a glimpse into the moments of tension and anxiety behind the dramatic rescue, including special conversations with commanders and Israel’s Prime Minister – who return to the drama they left behind in Cairo one last time.

Documentary aired on Keshet.
