After spending her last days with her daughter, who was released on June 7, Liora Argamani has passed away, Israeli media reported on Tuesday.

Liora Argamani, the mother of hostage Noa Argamani, has died at the age of 61 after a more than three-year battle with brain cancer, Israeli media reported on Tuesday, July 2. Her death was officially announced by Tel Aviv’s Sourasky Medical Center, as reported by Jerusalem Post Liora spent her last days alongside her daughter, for whom she had actively fought to obtain her release on June 7.

Following a video released by Hamas in January in which Noa announced the deaths of two people, Liora continued to fight for the release of all the hostages for eight months. This despite a degenerative disease, which, in addition to epilepsy and nausea, causes partial paralysis of the body and mental deterioration. Liora had written several letters to US President Joe Biden and appeared on CNN in December. Jerusalem Post reports, shortly after the kidnapping, that in an interview, Noa’s mother had stressed the importance “to see (his) daughter again before leaving the world…”.

May the memory of Liora be a blessing.”adds the Hebrew state account. The Hostage Families Forum has expressed its condolences: “The Families Headquarters deeply mourns the passing of Liora Argamani, the mother of the freed captive, Noa Argamani”.
