Hajjah Subha died after suffering cardiac arrest, while her son Mahmoud’s name was not included at the time in the last batch, and she was greatly affected by this shock. Which led to his death.
The affair is not yet over for Hajjah Mazyouna, who promised Hajjah Sobha that she would preserve the alliance between them by taking care of Mahmoud – the son of Sabha – as she would take care of her son Nasser, and of offer them the same follow-up and visit inside the occupied prisons.
Al-Hajjah Mazyuna considers the death of his companion oppression, injustice and heartache after nearly 23 years of joint prison visits Hajjah Subha is dead in his mind that his son Mahmoud would visit him and see him in his hands, but his death prevented him.
Hajjah Mazyuna visits Hajjah Subha’s grave in the cemetery of Aida camp, standing in front of her weeping for her and all those she has lost, as she is on the threshold of eighty years of her life, and she reassures her by speaking with her in her grave that she has seen Mahmoud and that he is in good health.
Hajjah Mazyuna says that Mahmoud was very affected by the loss of his mother, and he told her that he did not want to get out of prison, asking, “Who should I go out to after my mother died?”

Muslim tells Al-Jazeera Net that he and his brother Khalil – who is still captive – lost their father and mother and regarded Hajjah Mazyuna as the oldest in the prisoners ‘families’ journey of suffering, and is a symbol of patience firmness for about 30 years since the arrest of his son Nasser and the son of his companion Hajjah Subha, Mahmoud’s mother. With life and high judgments, they lost their father and mother.
Muslim considered that to separate the family and not to take the prisoner’s last farewell look at his mother or father is more painful than the restriction, captivity, deprivation and oppression of the prisoner, and this feeling is renewed with the various occasions that pass through the prisoner. inside the prisons of the occupation, and Muslim ends his speech by saying that this file must end with the release of the prisoners: from the prisons of the occupation, they do not want any privileges other than their release.
