Lior Raz and Avi Issacharoff, creators of the hit series "Fauda," have received the America Abroad Media Award. Raz announced the news on his Instagram. The award jury recognized the actors "for the creation of Fauda and the impact of the series all over the world."

The award ceremony took place in the United States Capitol Building in Washington, D.C.

"This exciting event reminded us how Fauda managed to touch so many people in the world. I also remember the two children from Jerusalem who dared to dream big and find themselves today receiving an award in such a position. Can say that the dream right now is that all the abductees will return home and that we will see better days", Raz wrote.

America Abroad Media honors outstanding leaders whose work exemplifies the power of media to inform, educate, and empower. The organization has previously awarded Netflix's Chief Content Officer Bela Bajaria, Secretary General of the Muslim World League Muhammad bin Abdul Karim Issa, as well as creators of TV series like "Ethos", "Ramy," and "A French Village."
