Is The War: Australia’s Bikie Killings based on a true story?
In the last two years, a string of calculated murders has rocked Sydney’s southwest in what has been called “the biggest gang war in living memory”.
The deadly conflict between the bikies and individuals from the two families was reignited by the brazen shooting of senior Comanchero bikie Tarek Zahed and the murder of his brother Omar in 2022.
It only escalated from there as acts of violence plagued the city, with targets being fatally gunned down in broad daylight and a spate of drive-by shootings taking place across suburbs.
The War: Australia’s Bikie Killings, based on these true events, will delve into the dark underbelly of Australia’s underworld and the brutal conflicts that have shaped it.
