BETH NAHRIN — The Bethnahrin National Council (Mawtbo Umthoyo D’Bethnahrin, MUB) has released a statement expressing their grief over the loss of Noura Hanna, a member of the MUB Administrative Body and member of the Syriac Union Party (SUP).

According to the MUB statement, Hanna, born in 1962 in the village of Qal’at al-Hadi in the countryside of Qabre Hewore (Qahtaniyah), North and East Syria, passed away after battling an incurable disease in Zalin (Qamishli). Her parents were identified as Malki Hanna Garnous and Maryam Lahdo.

Hanna actively contributed to the MUB’s initiatives and had been associated with the organization since its inception in Syria. She had recently taken on various responsibilities, particularly within the SUP.

The statement highlighted the Hanna family’s strong allegiance to the Syriac (Aramean–Assyrian–Chaldean) people and their homeland of Beth Nahrin (Mesopotamia). Together with her husband, Yacoub Malki Hanna, she raised a devoted family comprising Malek, Maria, Matay, and Quryaqus, all of whom have followed the path of Syriac (Aramean–Assyrian–Chaldean) people’s national struggle and remain dedicated members of the MUB.

Throughout her life, Hanna made significant sacrifices for the (Aramean–Assyrian–Chaldean) struggle. She played an active role in the institutions of the Gozarto (Jazira) Region under the Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria (AANES) and served as a member of the AANES Legislative Council in Gozarto Region.

The MUB statement concluded:

“We, as the MUB, will continue to honor the memory of our martyrs. Our heartfelt condolences go out to her family, fellow comrades in the struggle, and our patriotic people. We reaffirm our commitment to follow in the footsteps of our martyrs and fulfill their aspirations.”
