Amir Khan is sending aid to Gaza amid the Israel-Hamas war in the Middle East.

The United Nations has been appealing for a continuous flow of aid to Gaza and for Hamas to release dozens of hostages seized during an attack on October 7.

Israel responded with continuous air strikes, a complete siege of Gaza, cutting off electricity and water, and orders for people to evacuate the northern part of the enclave.

Amid the humanitarian crisis in Gaza, the Bolton boxer is using his AK Foundation charity to send aid and says a 'man on the ground' is already delivering much-needed food and essentials.

Amir has been vocal on social media with his support for the people of Palestine in Gaza now suffering as a result.

He said: “I condemn Hamas, but it is also a shame people of Palestine are being killed and starved as well.

“We have got a person on the ground who we have equipped and we got through, but it is a little difficult now. Hopefully we can get the food and water to Gaza.

“I will go on Instagram and it’s just videos of innocent people being killed and it’s sad.

“More people should raise their voices because people are scared to talk about it so that more people can see what is really going on.”

Amir pointed out that being vocal was the one thing he could do to help spread the news of the innocent people in Gaza.

He said: “It does shock me as well because people who I thought would stand up for this are not saying anything, which has really upset me.

“This war is not going anywhere but it’s destroying lives and that’s the reason I am talking about it.

“Perhaps we can start to change people’s views, but the main thing is to put stop to it.

“This is genocide and I have never seen this happen like this before.”

More than 1,400 people in Israel have been killed — mostly civilians killed during the initial Hamas attack.

At least 212 people were captured and dragged back to Gaza. Two Americans were released on Friday, hours before the first shipment of humanitarian aid.

More than 5,087 people have been killed in Gaza, according to the Hamas-run Health Ministry. That includes the disputed toll from a hospital explosion.
