The 1977 invasion of Uganda was an armed attempt by Ugandan exiles to overthrow the government of President Idi Amin. The exiles were based in Kenya, organized as the "Uganda Liberation Movement", and enjoyed covert foreign support. A Ugandan intelligence agency and a member of the rebel group claimed that Israel was backing the insurgents, but this was not independently confirmed. The Ugandan government learned of the rebels' plans beforehand. The invasion consequently failed when the rebels were confronted and defeated by the Uganda Army after crossing the Kenya-Uganda border in October 1977. Amin stayed in power until being overthrown during the Uganda–Tanzania War.

  • A invasão de Uganda em 1977 foi uma tentativa armada dos exilados ugandenses de depor o governo do presidente Idi Amin. Os exilados estavam baseados no Quênia, organizados como "Movimento de Libertação de Uganda" e desfrutavam de apoio estrangeiro encoberto. Uma agência de inteligência ugandense e um membro do grupo rebelde alegaram que Israel estava apoiando os insurgentes, mas isso não foi confirmado de forma independente. O governo de Uganda foi informado dos planos dos rebeldes com antecedência. Consequentemente, a invasão falhou quando os rebeldes foram confrontados e derrotados pelo Exército de Uganda depois de cruzar a fronteira Quênia-Uganda em outubro de 1977. Amin permaneceu no poder até ser derrubado durante a Guerra Uganda-Tanzânia. (pt)
