JERUSALEM (Reuters) – An Israeli woman’s breast implants saved her life when she was wounded in a Hizbollah rocket attack during Israel’s war with the Lebanese group, a hospital spokesman said Tuesday.

“She was saved from death,” said a spokesman for Nahariya Hospital in northern Israel. The woman has been released from hospital
