Pope Francis Calls for Humanitarian Aid in Gaza

Speaking after Sunday’s Angelus prayer, Pope Francis expressed his concern and grief over what is happening in Palestine.

“I am very concerned, grieved. I pray and I am close to all those who are suffering, the hostages, the wounded, the victims and their families.”

The Pope said he is very concerned over “the serious humanitarian situation in Gaza,” and he was “saddened that the al-Ahli hospital and the Greek Orthodox parish” were hit in the war violence in recent days.

“I renew my appeal for spaces to be opened, for humanitarian aid to continue to arrive and for hostages to be freed.”

“War, any war that there is in the world “the Pope continued,” is a defeat. War always is a defeat, it is a destruction of human fraternity. Stop! Stop!”
