Mother of Rescued Israeli Hostage Noa Argamani Dies Following Daughter's Release from Hamas Captivity

Liora Argamani, mother of freed Israeli hostage Noa Argamani, dies from brain cancer weeks after her daughter’s dramatic rescue from Hamas captivity in Gaza.

Bollywood Fever: Liora Argamani, mother of recently rescued Israeli hostage Noa Argamani, has passed away three weeks after her daughter’s release. Liora, who was born in China and suffered from brain cancer, was 61.

In December, Liora made a heartfelt plea to Hamas for her daughter’s release, stating, “I don’t know how long I have left. I wish for the chance to see my Noa at home.”

Noa was freed on June 8 during a daring raid by Israeli commandos in the Nuseirat refugee camp in central Gaza. Along with Noa, three other hostages were also rescued from a nearby apartment.

An image of Noa being abducted by Hamas gunmen on a motorcycle became an iconic symbol of the attack on Israel on October 7, 2023, during which 1,200 people were killed and 251 hostages, including Israelis and foreign nationals, were taken.

The attack led to a devastating war between Israel and Hamas, resulting in at least 37,900 deaths in Gaza, according to the Hamas-run health ministry.

The Hostages and Missing Families Forum expressed deep sorrow over Liora’s death. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife conveyed their condolences, stating, “We grieve from the bottom of our hearts for the passing of Liora Argamani and share in the family’s grief.”

Noa spoke publicly for the first time since her rescue in a video message played at a Tel Aviv protest advocating for the release of remaining hostages. She shared, “As an only child to my parents, and a mother suffering from a terminal illness, my biggest concern in captivity was for my parents. It’s a great privilege to be here after 246 days in Hamas captivity, to be beside my mother after eight months of uncertainty.”

Hamas and allied groups still hold 116 hostages, including Noa’s boyfriend Avinatan Or, taken on October 7. Israeli authorities presume at least 42 of these hostages are dead. Others have been released, rescued, or their bodies recovered. Additionally, four other Israelis have been held hostage since 2014 and 2015, with two presumed dead.
