For most of the three-hour call, the only sounds that punctured the eerie silence were the deep breaths drawn by the mother and her 10-year-old daughter.

Minutes before Dariya Karp picked up the phone at Kibbutz Re’im on Saturday morning, the girl saw Hamas terrorists break into the home and murder her father, Dvir, and his partner, Stav.

Dariya and her younger brother Lavi were visiting for the weekend.

“Mom, they murdered dad and also Stav,” she texted her mom from the sealed room. “Help us.”

Reut, her frantic mother, was hours away in central Israel. Eight minutes earlier, she had gotten word from her ex that Palestinian terrorists had overrun the border community.

She tried to calm her daughter as she desperately messaged security officials and everyone she knew in Re’im for help.

“Mom, when are they coming? I can’t take anymore,” the girl told her mom.

“You have water, right?” Reut responded.

“Yes, but I can’t get to it because the bodies are here,” Dariya responded.

“Don’t look at the bodies,” her mother said.
