Idan Amedi, known for his role in “Fauda,” and who joined the Israeli forces following the Oct. 7 attack against Hamas, has successfully undergone surgery and regained consciousness after sustaining serious injuries. The 35-year-old actor was airlifted to a hospital on Monday due to shrapnel wounds sustained while serving as an IDF reservist in the Combat Engineering Corps.

In an interview just before his injury, Amedi discussed his unit’s efforts to uncover and destroy tunnels built by Hamas, revealing findings of weaponry, including special arms. Although he remains hospitalized and under treatment, he is now awake and in stable condition.

Born to Kurdish immigrants and raised in Jerusalem, Amedi portrays elite IDF soldier Sagi Tzur in the Netflix series “Fauda,” which explores the Israel-Hamas conflict. Since the Oct. 7 attack, which claimed over 1,200 lives in Southern Israel, several individuals associated with the show have been injured or lost their lives. Lior Waitzman, the show’s post-production sound editor, was killed in the Oct. 7 attack, and producer Matan Meir lost his life in a booby-trapped tunnel while serving in the Israeli army on Nov. 11.

Amedi fulfilled his mandatory military service in the IDF Combat Engineering Corps from 2006 to 2009. One of his notable songs, “Warrior’s Pain,” delves into the post-traumatic experiences of a soldier, providing insight into the emotional challenges faced by those who serve in the military, as reported by the Times of Israel.
