Amir Khan is hosting a charity dinner night to raise money for victims in Palestine amid the ongoing war with Israel.

The retired boxer from Bolton has been vocal on social media in his support for Palestine during the conflict.

While condemning Hamas and their actions, Amir also condemned the actions of Israel against Palestine and called it a "genocide".

Since then, he has now teamed up with the Smile Aid charity for a dinner held at My Lahore in Manchester to raise money for innocent civilians affected by the conflict.

In a statement on Instagram, Amir said: “Our hearts are torn.

“See you all on December 19 in Manchester.

“Special thank you to @mylahore_ for supporting Amir Khan Foundation with the free event & three-course meal.”

His wife, Faryal Makhdoom recently announced the delayed launch of her lip-kit, where a percentage of each sale will go to Palestine.

She said: “My Signature Lip Kit, my most in demand product is out now.

“My all time go to look, the perfect brown tinted gloss, and brown liner.

“The perfect pairing to create my signature lip look.

“I will be donating an amount per sale to help our brothers and sisters in our beloved Palestine.”

Last month, Amir spoke to The Bolton News about the horrendous things he was seeing about the victims in Palestine.

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

“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.”
