"Fauda" (Arabic for 'Chaos') depicts the two-sided story of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Doron, a commander of undercover Israeli unit, the Israeli Special Forces, operating inside Palestinian territories, and his team, are hunting down Hamas terrorist Abu-Ahmed. On the other side of the fence, the life of Abu-Ahmed and his family, who has thus far murdered 143 Israelis, will never accept the State of Israel, and will continue Jihad for as long as it takes.
Knowing little of the Israeli - Palestine conflicts and issues I watched this series initially only because of a review I read somewhere. Not really into watching something with subtitles I was gripped from the beginning and couldn't stop watching it.
Perhaps it was learning about something or some place in the world that I know little of or perhaps it was the story line. Either or this was a fantastic series to watch and you remained intense through out the show.
The acting is great and film is shot with an excellent eye. Beautifully done.
Because of this show I've now educated myself further in the issues of the lands of this area of the middle east.
Can't wait to see if there is a season two.
