Pope warns against fuelling a spiral of violence in the Middle East

RELIGIONS NEWS AGENCY(REDNA) – Pope Francis has called for a stop to any actions that may fuel the “spiral of violence” in the Middle East, risking a wider war in the region.

Addressing the faithful in St Peter’s Square on Sunday, he said he was following with “prayer and concern, even sorrow” the news on of the region.

He said nobody should threaten the existence of others, and all nations should “take the side of peace,” helping Israelis and Palestinians to live in two states, side by side, in security.

He added, “it is their deep and legitimate desire, and it is their right! Two neighbouring states.”

He renewed his call for a ceasefire, humanitarian aid and the release of hostages.
