Soldiers in Sarra

November 20, 2010 No Comments

BY: NISREEN GHANEM

On one winter night, Israeli soldiers came to our village with dogs.  They began searching for something but we didn’t know what.

They reached our house at 2:30 in the morning.  They jumped over the gate, then they knocked on the door loudly.  We were not sleeping because we had heard bombs in the village.

My father opened the door and the soldiers told us to sit in one of the rooms downstairs.  Some of the soldiers watched us and others searched the house.  They asked about my brother’s room and checked it carefully.  My little brother, only seven years old, was shivering from the cold.  The soldiers didn’t find anything.

The next day, we were told that they arrested 18 boys.

A few days later, the boys were released.  We were told that all of this was only a training activity for the soldiers.
