The terror group Hezbollah fired a rocket that hit a mother and 15-year-old son, leaving them in serious condition on Tuesday. The two were evacuated from the northern border by helicopter to a hospital for treatment, reports The Times of Israel:

The Magen David Adom ambulance service said a 15-year-old boy and a 47-year-old woman were in serious condition after being injured by the rocket, which landed on a street in the largely evacuated city.

The two, a mother and son according to Hebrew media reports, were evacuated by helicopter to Haifa’s Rambam Hospital, where doctors managed to stabilize them, the medical center said.

Hezbollah said the attack came in retaliation for an Israeli strike in the southern Lebanese town of Talloussa on Monday, in which at least two members of the Iran-backed terror group were killed.
