AFAIK never used in a sentence.

KGT 48:  Common militaristic acts also have associated terminology, both verbs ({DoHmoH}, drive back; {Hub}, defend; {yot}, invade; {weH}, raid ... {HIv}, attack, assault; {Sev}, contain; {HeD}, retreat, withdraw) and nouns ({yot}, invasion, raid, incursion; {Hub}, defense).

KGT 49:  {HeDchu'} ("retreat perfectly") means simply that there is a full withdrawal; though death may occur as part of the retreat, it is not necessarily implied by the verb.

More related words:

DoH 		back away from, back off, get away from (v)
jun 		take evasive action (v)
nargh 	escape (v)

Dan		occupy (military term) (v)
chol		close in, get closer, come nearer (v)
Duv 		advance (v)
tlhetlh 	progress (v)
ghoS		follow a course, proceed, come toward, approach (v)
paw		arrive, reach (v)
