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.”
Abu Halil is grabbed off the streets and winds up being interrogated by Gabi, where he reveals he brought sarin nerve gas, via Jordan from Syria. Gabi uses this information to convince Gideon to allow Doron to fulfil his mission in exchange for a full pardon. Gabi presents Nassrin with their passports and informs her that he has arranged for their travel to Berlin. Doron returns home to find Ido pointing a gun at Naor, blaming him for the reason his father is not there. Shirin reluctantly agrees to marry Walid, but sleeps with Doron after he walks out of his house. Taufiq reveals his plan to Walid, that the sarin nerve gas will be detonated in the synagogue, which will cause Israel to retaliate with force, committing war crimes, which will force the other Islamic states to respond.
