Al-Qarawi pointed out that the main aim of the intrusion was to terrorize and intimidate his family, pointing out that he was prevented from reaching the house and held in a remote place until the inspections were completed.

Al-Qarawi added that the Israeli occupation's singling out those who remained in the house caused terror against children and women as part of a quick inspection that did not take an hour of his apartment and his children's apartments.
