"Fauda" (Arabic for "chaos"), is the new and first Israeli political action drama hit TV series to bring the real-life complexities and two-sided story of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict to the screen. Seen through the experience of an elite undercover Israeli unit of combat soldiers known as the mista'arvim, the officers are trained in the culture and customs of Palestinians and operate inside Palestine in order to carry out covert military operations. Doron, commander of the undercover unit and his team are hunting down Hamas activist Abu-Ahmed, also known as "The Panther", whom they thought to be dead, yet he is alive and living underground in the West Bank. On the other side of the border, we experience the loyal and tragic life of Abu-Ahmed, his devoted family, and the reasons for their escalating hatred towards Israel.
