Oops, I almost for got; their death is considered a good thing because it is part of the "struggle" to "free Palestine", and their death is martyrdom that will be rewarded in "heaven".

A Grad rocket exploded in the back yard of a house in the city of Netivot, southern Israel on Friday evening, causing light damage to the house, but no casualties.
Two Netivot residents reported suffering from symptoms of shock after the incident.
Negev District Police Chief Peretz Amar told Haaretz, "There was a hit in the back yard of a house which caused light damage but no injuries. It could have been more serious if the Grad had fallen a little bit to the right or to the left."
A video uploaded to YouTube purports to show the view from the window of a building in Netivot as the rocket exploded.
On Monday, the IDF struck a number of sites in Gaza in response to a barrage of rocket and mortar fire, for which the armed wing of Hamas and Islamic Jihad claimed responsibility.
The rocket fire, which continued throughout the morning hours on Monday, was in response to the IDF targeting two Gaza militants - killing one of them and injuring 11 civilians - the previous night.
