The Roman Pontiff stressed the inadmissibility of the death of civilians.
Pope Francis has called for an end to the conflict in Israel and Gaza, stressing that the deaths of so many people, including children, in recent days, are unacceptable.
“I call for calm, and those who are responsible- (I call) to put an end to the clatter of weapons and to embark on the path of peace,” the pontiff said in a Sunday address to the faithful gathered in front of St. Peter’s Cathedral.
“Many innocent people died, including children. It is horrible. This is unacceptable. Their death is a sign that people do not want to create the future, but want to destroy it…I ask: where will hatred and revenge lead?” said Pope Francis.
