    Amedi, 35, best known for his role in the Netflix hit show “Fauda,” was released from hospital last month after an explosion left him unconscious for days, with shrapnel in his eye sockets, jaw and neck. At the time of the blast, he had been serving in a reserve combat engineering unit.

    “Every now and then I have some understanding of the miracle that happened to me, but honestly I don’t think I will ever grasp it,” Amedi wrote on Instagram. “That’s how miracles are, you have to accept them and above all don’t forget what happened.”

    Amedi revealed that the injuries to his face were so severe that he was admitted to Sheba Medical Center in Ramat Gan as “John Doe.”

    Six soldiers were killed in the incident, reportedly accidentally caused by Israeli forces.

    Amedi is best known for playing agent Sagi Tzur in “Fauda,” a Netflix drama about an elite Israeli undercover unit trying to track down a notorious Palestinian terrorist. Amedi first joined the series during its second season seven years ago.

    Amedi is also a popular singer, and has recorded five albums. His song “A Warrior’s Pain,” about the post-traumatic experiences of a soldier returning from war, was one of Israel’s most popular songs in 2010.

    Amedi, who is of Kurdish descent, lives in Jerusalem with his wife and two children.

    Matan Meir, a key member of the “Fauda” production team, was killed in northern Gaza last year.
