Nechama Rivlin, the first lady of Israel, has died at age 73 on Tuesday morning after an unsuccessful survival quest with respiratory diseases for years.
She passed away at Beilinson hospital in Petah Tikva, where she had a lung transplant about three months ago.
She has been suffering from pulmonary fibrosis and had to move with a portable oxygen tank everywhere.
In a statement by Israel Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu said, “Together with all the citizens of Israel, my wife Sara and I express deep sorrow at the passing of the wife of the president, Nehama Rivlin.
