Lior Raz, star of Netflix’s Fauda, has travelled to Israel’s front lines to assist his ‘brothers in arms.’
This comes after the Palestinian terrorist organisation Hamas started strikes on Israel on Saturday, sparking a confrontation in which over 1,700 people have died on both sides.
The 51-year-old actor shared a video of himself cowering behind a wall as rockets are fired overhead on Twitter/X.
Lior, well known for his role as Doron Kabilio in the Netflix comedy Fauda, can be seen swearing and staring over his head before hiding again as the rockets explode.
‘Accompanied by Yohanan Plesner @yplesner and Avi @issacharoff, I headed down south to join hundreds of brave “brothers in arms” volunteers who worked tirelessly to assist the population in the south of Israel,’ he wrote alongside the footage.
‘We were sent to the bombarded town of Sderot to extract 2 families.’
The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) say they are continuing to attack Hamas targets in the Gaza strip in retaliation. Overnight, the Israeli Air Force said 200 targets were hit in Gaza.
In Fauda – which was co-written by Lior – the actor plays an IDF veteran who works in a vineyard, before getting roped back into active duty.
This weekend’s major development comes amid years of conflict between Israel and Palestine.
The Israeli government has forced many Palestinians to live in the Gaza Strip, a coastal territory that is one of the most densely inhabited in the world.
This latest escalation saw the terrorist group Hamas launch an attack on Israel on Saturday, which resulted in sights of dead corpses, kidnappings, and an attack on music festival attendees.
It is reported that Hamas now has approximately 150 Israeli hostages in Gaza. The Hamas military wing has stated that if people are attacked in their houses in Gaza ‘without prior notice,’ it will murder one Israeli civilian prisoner.
Now, Israel has initiated retaliatory airstrikes, which have displaced almost 200,000 Palestinians in Gaza since they began.
