Moments ago, the Syrian Presidency announced that First Lady Asmaa Al Assad was diagnosed with leukemia. 

The statement of the Syrian Presidency highlighted that Al Assad needs a special treatment protocol, and she needs isolation.

Therefore, she will step away from all her public engagements. 

Five years ago, the Syrian first lady announced that she fully recovered from breast cancer.

Since 2011, she played a key role in supporting and leading the public role of charity efforts and meeting families.

Last year, she accompanied President Bashar Al Assad on a visit to the UAE, which was her first known official trip abroad with him since 2011.
