Pope Francis has condemned the killing of Palestinians near the Gaza-Israel border.
Veloxnews recalls that Israeli forces had on Monday killed 60 Palestinians near the Gaza-Israel border.
The incident occurred during the protest that ‘greeted’ the opening of the U.S embassy in Jerusalem, and has been tagged the bloodiest day in Gaza in several years.
Reacting, Pope Francis told thousands at St. Peter’s Square that violence would only lead to more violence. He, therefore, appealed for dialogue to bring justice and peace to the Middle East.
He said, “I express my great pain for the dead and wounded and I am close in prayer and affection to all those who are suffering.
“I repeat that the use of violence never lead to peace. War begets war and violence begets violence.”
