El Al Flight LY432, was a scheduled service from Amsterdam (AMS), the Netherlands to Tel Aviv (TLV), Israel, with an intermediate stop at Zürich (ZRH), Switzerland.
The airplane, a Boeing 720, was taxiing for takeoff at Zürich when it was attacked by a squad of four armed Palestinian militants, members of the Lebanese-based militant organization Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine. Several of the crew members were injured during the attack and the plane was severely damaged. The co-pilot, Yoram Peres, died of his wounds a month later.
An undercover Israeli security guard who stationed on the plane, Mordechai Rahamim, opened fire at the attackers, killing one.
