A Middle East Airlines Boeing 707 aircraft, while en route to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia from Beirut, Lebanon with 66 passengers and 10 crew members aboard, was hijacked by a lone male. He claimed to have a gun and a bomb and demanded several million dollars for the anti-Israeli resistance movement in southern Lebanon.
The aircraft landed at Jeddah where the hijacker, a Lebanese, was persuaded to give himself up to local authorities. All on board were reported unharmed and the aircraft was permitted to make the return flight to Beirut.
