If you need something new to watch during coronavirus lockdown, the third season of hit Netflix series Fauda is now available to watch.
Since its 2015 premiere, millions have been gripped by the show’s storyline, which revolves around Israeli unit commander Doron Kavillio, played by co-writer Lior Raz, fighting terrorists threatening the security of the Jewish State.
The third series, which was released in late December in Israel, is partly filmed in the Israeli–Arab town of Jisr az-Zarqa, north of Caesarea, and looks at issues caused by tunnels built by terrorists.
In the latest season, which you can now watch on Netflix, Doron is deep undercover in the West Bank, posing as an Israeli Arab boxing instructor in a sports club belonging to a low-level Hamas member.
Following numerous, deadly clashes with Hamas and a tragic incident that all but shatters the team’s morale, Doron and the team find themselves in unfamiliar territory – Gaza.
In an interview earlier this year, co-writer Avi Issacharoff revealed he visited Gaza as part of an IDF media delegation in 2014. There he directly saw the impact the tunnels and terrorists posed to civilians.
Earlier this month it was revealed that the streaming service had cut traffic and lowered bitrates in Israel for a month to reduce traffic by 25 percent, as Israelis, cooped up inside due to isolation, had been watching a little too much on the service.
