Breaking TV viewership records in Israel, this mind-blowing action thriller has been compared to The Wire, Homeland and The Hurt Locker. Since the late 80's, the Israeli Defence Forces has operated special undercover units where soldiers, disguised as Palestinians, blend into the Arab community to carry out anti-terror operations. Fauda (meaning “chaos” in Arabic) takes an unprecedented inside look at the lives of these operatives, as they intertwine with the lives of the terrorists. Featuring first-rate performances, intelligent direction by Assaf Bernstein (The Debt) and nuanced writing, Fauda will leave you on the edge of your seat until the very last episode. Don’t miss it
