    The show became a hit almost immediately after its first season first aired in Israel in 2015. It was picked up by online streaming service Netflix in 2016, where it is now being streamed to 190 countries under the "Netflix Original" label.
    "We are proud that Fauda is going to be broadcast on [Manoto TV], and that it will allow, for the first time, a Farsi-speaking audience to watch the series and see the [Israeli-Palestinian] conflict from previously unknown angles," Issacharoff said.

    The show, which has bilingual scripts in Hebrew and Arabic, has been praised for its realism and ruthless portrayal of undercover commandos masquerading as Palestinians to pursue terrorists in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
    The New York Times ranked it as one of the best series of 2017, while pro-Palestinian activists called it "Israeli war propaganda."
