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.”
Walid watches the suicide vest being assembled while Doron and his team review their plan. Doron is brought to the secret location and fit with the suicide vest. While Doron is prepped for the missions Walid goes to see Shirin where she tells him they cannot get married. Walid, assuming its due to Amir, goes to the Palestinian Preventive Security office to confront him, only to find out Amir is really Doron, and they have recruited a Jewish spy. Walid phones back to alert the people prepping Doron that he is a spy, so they ditch his stuff into the back of a pick up truck, which the team winds up following. Just as they are about to shoot Doron, the team returns and kills all of the Hamas men there. Walid returns to Taufiq’s hide out, shows him the proof on Doron, then shoots Taufiq in the head from behind. Walid sends the proof of who Doron really is to Shirin, and she walks out on Doron mid-date.
