Inside the shelters, essential amenities are available, including beds, water supply, toilets, and food provisions. There's even a water supply for fire suppression. This comprehensive preparation ensures that people can stay safe during attacks and meet their basic human needs.

As missile attacks often occur at night, people sometimes spend the night in the shelters, especially when the Israeli army and militants are actively engaged in combat. The conflict is not solely about targeting individuals; it also includes attempts to terrorize, loot, and destroy homes.
