“I cannot sleep. Sometimes I stay up out of fear for my children and brothers. Anyone can enter our cave; they won’t allow me to build a door that could protect the children…” — Barakat Mur

The Family in the Cave

Barakat Mur’s family has been attacked in Khirbet at Twamin by Israeli settlers four times since January 2020. They sleep in fear for their safety. Fearing for their safety, the women and girls of the family found a temporary living situation and are living apart from their loved ones.
