Pope Francis has come out to wade into the ongoing attacks and violence in Israel and Gaza. He recently revealed that the killings of children and women must stop, and the world has been reacting.
According to him, humanitarian corridors should allow the delivery of food, water and fuel to the Gaza Strip, and humanitarian law must be respected.
Pope then urged that kids, the sick, the elderly, women and all civilians to not fall victim to the conflict.
His words, “Humanitarian law must be respected, especially in Gaza, where it is urgent and necessary to guarantee humanitarian corridors and help the population.
I strongly urge that children, the sick, the elderly, women and all civilians should not fall victim to the conflict.
There have already been so many deaths, please let’s not shed any more innocent blood, not in the Holy Land, not in Ukraine, not anywhere else. Enough is enough. War is always a defeat.”
