The third season of Fauda, which showcases the lives of a team of undercover Israeli commando operatives, is set in the Gaza Strip.
The focus of the show’s main character is to pose as a Palestinian boxing instructor in order to gain access to the senior ranks of the Hamas militant group.
The Gaza Strip, also known as just Gaza, is a Palestinian territory located on the east coast of the Mediterranean Sea.
Egypt is on the southwest for just under 7 miles, and Israel is on the east and north. The area is self-governed by the de jure sovereign State of Palestine.
Gaza and the West Bank are separated by Israeli territory. Although both had been under the jurisdiction of the Palestinian Authority, Gaza has been governed by Hamas since 2007.
Hamas is a Palestinian fundamentalist militant Islamic organisation. They first rose to power during free elections in 2006.
Gaza is often seen as overcrowded, and it is the most densely populated polity in the world. The population can’t leave or enter the Gaza Strip – or import and export goods freely – due to Israeli and Egyptian border closures and the Israeli sea and air blockade.
Fauda season 3 returned to Netflix on April 16 and is available for streaming now.
