2 critically hurt by rocket in Lod; direct hit on house in Yehud, no injuries

Two people were seriously injured when a rocket hit their home in the city of Lod.

They were evacuated to the Assaf Harofeh hospital, with one in critical condition and another in serious condition, the Magen David Adom rescue service says.

In Tel Aviv, an 80-year-old man suffered an apparent heart attack while running to a public shelter, medics said.

Another missile hit a house in the town of Yehud, just north of the Ben Gurion Airport.

Rescue workers say the family who lived in the house were saved by their bomb shelter.

Pictures from the scene showed the house completely destroyed.
