Noa's partner could not be with her, still a Hamas prisoner in the Gaza Strip. Liora Argamani, who is of Chinese origin, had fought hard for the release of her daughter, who spent eight months in prison before being freed during the Nuseirat blitz. After returning to Israel, Noa said: “My biggest worry during captivity was my parents,” referring to her mother's terminal cancer. “It is a great privilege to be able to be by her side,” he added.
