February 24, 2015 - One of the most interesting shows currently airing on Israeli television is a new series called “Fauda”. The show tells the story of a fictional Ministry of Defense undercover/Mistaravim Special Forces unit and its hunt for wanted terrorists in the Territories. Given the vast presence of Israeli Special Forces in both military and civilian lives, Fauda is surprisingly the first Israeli television show to extensively feature such a unit. Interestingly, several of the show’s creators and actors are Special Forces veterans, primarily from Duvdevan, which lends further authenticity to show. Visit Undercover Units Guide for more information on Israel's real life Mistaravim units - YAMAS, Gideonim and Duvdevan.
