arrived in Hebron and Palestinians have reported an increase in the number of home invasions. Raheb, mother of five young
girls, told CPTers about the hour-long raid of her home, describing how they
first searched the roof, then entered their home where her girls were
asleep. Soldiers proceeded to

asked the soldiers, "Why are you here?" The only answer she received
was, "Where are your men?" As it happened, soldiers were detaining the men of the household outside on the street. Two of Raheb's five daughters slept through the raid, while
the other three watched in terror.
