Just three weeks ago, Noa Argamani was freed by an IDF rescue operation in Gaza, and now she says goodbye to her mother who battled cancer, reports The Jerusalem Post.

Hundreds arrived in Beersheba on Tuesday at the funeral of Liora Argamani, mother of Noa Argamani, who was rescued from captivity in Gaza. Liora passed away Monday night after a long battle with cancer. She was 61

“My mother is the best friend there is, the most beautiful and strong person I have ever known in my life,” Noa paid tribute at her funeral. “I stand here today and still have a hard time digesting. Against all odds I was privileged to be with you in the last moments and to hear the last words. Thank you for being strong and holding on so that I could see you at least one more time and so that father would not be left alone.
