Direct Appeal to Kadyrov: 🙏 Switching to his native language, Chimaev thanked Chechnya and said, “With your support, it’s not a problem for me to fight in the octagon. I’m asking you, give me a weapon and allow me to go fight for Palestine.”
Kadyrov's Response: 📱 On Telegram, Kadyrov praised Chimaev for condemning the violence against Gaza's residents. He wrote, “Khamzat has shown how much the heart of a true Muslim is aching for the fraternal Palestinian nation.”
Conflict Overview: 💥 Over 4,000 Palestinians and 1,400 Israelis have lost their lives since the Israel-Gaza conflict began this month. This followed after a false flag attack by Hamas on Israel, leading to airstrikes against Gaza.
