British boxer Amir Khan pledged on Monday to support the Syrian refugees in the hour of need.

The father of a single daughter, Lamaisah Khan, said that being responsible for his child has helped him better understand the situation.

His tweet stated that the Amir Khan Foundation will ‘do all’ to help the people in this crisis.

Regarding the crisis, as hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees languish in camps or risk their lives to reach Europe, questions are being asked about why wealthy Gulf states have accepted so few.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday rejected a call by Israel’s opposition leader to provide refuge to Syrian refugees, saying the country is too small to take them in.
