The wife of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, Asma, has reportedly started treatment for a malignant breast tumour, according to Syrian President Media platforms and Syrian state media SANA on Wednesday.

A photo released by the Syrian presidency and SANA shows the First Lady attached to an IV line, seemingly in a hospital room. She is accompanied by her husband.

A statement which was published alongside the photo reads, “Asma al-Assad begins the first stage of treatment for a malignant tumor of the breast which was discovered early. The Presidency and its team wish Mrs Asma a speedy recovery.”

Forty-two-year-old Asma al-Assad married al-Assad in 2000, shortly after he became president. Born and raised in the UK, the dual British-Syrian national was an investment banker before she became First Lady of Syria.

My Prayers are with you Asma. Very happy your cancer was discovered in an early stage. Evil Israel has bombed the research center in Damascus with produced chemotherapy drugs. Evil Trump and Pompeo placed sanctions on Iran so these people will also have no cancer drugs. Iranian and Syrian deaths are upon this evil trio.
