Fauda (Hebrew: פאודה, from Arabic: فوضى fawḍā, meaning “chaos”) is an Israeli television series developed by Lior Raz and Avi Issacharoff drawing on their experiences in the Israel Defence Forces.
The series premiered on 15 February 2015. It tells the story of Doron, a commander in the Mista’arvim unit and his team as they pursue a Hamas arch-terrorist known as “The Panther.”
Doron is brought back into the IDF after discovering that Taufiq, the man he thought he killed 18 months earlier, was still alive and planning on attending his brother Bashir’s wedding. Ultimately they are discovered and Bashir is killed, moments before Taufiq is to arrive. Although Doron is able to shoot Taufiq after recognising him and chasing him, Taufiq is able to escape.
