The news article A Palestinian family has been evacuated from their home after being threatened by an Israeli soldier who said they were committing “terrorism.”
In an incident recorded by the family’s daughter, she said the soldier approached her in the middle of the night while she was sleeping and said, “We will put you in the grave.”
The soldier then began yelling at the family, asking them if they were carrying a knife, before the soldier ordered her to leave their house.

The soldier threatened to kill them if the family did not leave.
He was eventually captured by the Israeli army.
The family was later returned to their home.
