Definition: contain (an enemy)

(KGT 48):  Common militaristic acts also have associated terminology, both verbs ({DoHmoH}, drive back; {Hub}, defend; {yot}, invade; {weH}, raid [same as yot, really, but with the added connotation of surprise or speed]; {HIv}, attack, assault; {Sev}, contain; {HeD}, retreat, withdraw) and nouns ({yot}, invasion, raid, incursion; {Hub}, defense).
