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.”
Taufiq is shown to have survived the gun shot wound, but barely, and is forced to have secret emergency surgery as to not reveal that he is alive or where he is. Doron is able to convince Moreno to allow him to stay on beyond his one mission, until they catch Taufiq, while Doron is revealed to have marital issues at home. Bashir’s family all mourns him as a Shahid (martyr), while his wife, Amal, vows revenge.
