The series, which is shown on the “Apple TV” platform, produced by the Israeli public television network, tells the state of hostility between Iran and Israel, in which the actress, Niv Sultan, plays the heroine.
Sultan, played the role of an agent of the Mossad, who has Iranian origins, and is considered one of the best “hacker” computer hackers, and is sent on a secret and sensitive mission in Iran, to penetrate Tehran’s nuclear program and contribute to its elimination.
Foreign Policy pointed out that the plot is not based solely on hostility between the two countries, as it also shows the roots of about 140,000 Israelis dating back to Iran, while about 10,000 Jews still live there as a minority, after their numbers exceeded 80,000 in the 1940s.
The author of the report, Jonathan Verziger, explains that the series, which began airing last Friday, included important joints related to romantic entanglement at times, and a mental chess game between intelligence services at other times, all of this under the basic story of an Iranian nuclear power reactor.
He adds that many of the fingers of accusation were in fact directed at Israel that it is responsible for explosions or fires that occurred in Iranian nuclear facilities, which is not confirmed or denied by Israel, and this dramatic act may make the viewer approach what is happening between reality and fiction.
Although the idea of an Israeli-Iranian cooperation in a television series or any other field is completely unthinkable at the present time, the writer of the series “Tehran”, Moshe Zonder, likes to say that the work is a “joint cultural production”, according to Agence France-Presse. .
Zonder explains, “We speak Persian more than Hebrew in the Tehran series … so I like to classify the series as somewhat Israeli-Iranian, although this is not official.”
The writer asserts that the two peoples, the Iranian and the Israeli, “could be friends if it were not for the leaders who frighten their citizens and stir hatred in order to stay in power.”
Also participating in the work are Iranian-born actors, Naid Negban and Sean Top.
On the other hand, Zonder asserts that “placing a woman at the center of the plot of this new action series was a political decision.”
“We wanted to see what would be the options of a talented but inexperienced woman in a world ruled by men after the failure of her leaders,” he explains.
And he stresses that “this series is a feminist par excellence.”
The Tehran series is not the first television drama in which Israel tries to send messages about the work of Israeli intelligence agencies in the countries of the region.
A few months ago, the series “The Spy” was shown on Netflix, and portrayed the story of Eli Cohen, who was born in Egypt and played by the actor, Sacha Baron Cohen, as an ambitious immigrant who speaks Arabic in Israel who is recruited by the Mossad, overcomes his fears and then infiltrates the high command in Damascus As a descendant of the rich Syrian diaspora.
Cohen’s order was discovered and executed by the Syrian authorities in 1965. Due to his long and perilous espionage mission, he is considered in Israel a hero for the importance of the information he provided that helped in the occupation of the Golan in 1967.

The widow of Israeli spy Eli Cohen received the series The Spy, which was produced by Netflix and embodies the story of Cohen, who managed to infiltrate the Syrian government in the 1960s before being executed, with mixed feelings.
The Israeli spy, according to the series, had deceived the late Syrian president, Amin Al-Hafez, to the point that he considered appointing him to the position of deputy prime minister.
Israel and Iran had diplomatic relations during the era of the Shah, Muhammad Reza Pahlavi, but with the outbreak of the Islamic Revolution in 1979, this became a thing of the past.
The tension between the two countries in recent years is focused especially on Iran’s nuclear file, as Israel is striving to prevent Tehran from acquiring nuclear weapons, while Iranian officials have vowed Israel to destroy it.
