Terrorism

On the 30th of April 1980 a group of six armed men stormed the Iranian embassy on Prince's Gate in South Kensington, London.
The gunmen, Iranian Arabs campaigning for sovereignty of Khuzestan Province, took 26 people hostage, including embassy staff, several visitors, and a police officer who had been guarding the embassy.
6 Days later the Special Air Service initiated a rescue operation that safely liberated all but two hostages.
What was the codename of that operation, referring to a biblical king of Mesopotamia known as a mighty hunter?
