An Israeli woman wounded in a Hezbollah rocket attack was saved by her breast implants, according to a hospital spokesman. “This is an extraordinary case, but it’s a fact that the silicone implants prevented her from a more serious and deeper wound,” Jacky Govrin of the Nahariya hospital, which treated the woman, told Israel Army Radio on Tuesday.
