What Pope Francis said about Gaza killings, violence in middle

Pope 'making history' with Chile abuse summit

Pope Francis said he's "very concerned" over the tensions in the Holy Land and the Middle East, which have reignited in recent days with the moving of the USA embassy to Israel to Jerusalem.

On Monday, at least 60 Palestinians were killed by Israeli forces.

Pope Francis on Wednesday called for the end of the wave of violence in the Holy Land and appealed for the opening of talks.

Calling for "dialogue, justice and peace, ' Francis says violence 'has never led to peace". This is what he said when greeting a group of retired soldiers from World War II.

"I express my great sorrow for the dead and wounded and I am close through prayer and affection to all those who suffer", he added. "War begets war, violence begets violence".

Pope Francis asked all parties involved in the conflict and the whole global community to renew their promise so that dialogue, justice and peace takes precedence.

Last December, on the same day Trump announced his decision to fulfill a campaign promise by moving the USA embassy to Jerusalem, Francis said that could not "keep silent about my deep concern" for Jerusalem and urged respect for "the status quo of the city in accordance with the relevant resolutions of the United Nations".

In a statement to Christian Today he said: 'The Roman Catholic Bishop of Clifton [Declan Lang] and I were in Gaza in January and saw for ourselves the withered economy and the confines under which the population must live as well as the heroic service provided to the population at large by the small Christian community there.

In the header of the message, Reuters said that Francis condemned (condemns) the killing in Gaza.

'All violence is destructive to peace efforts and our cry is for a peaceful two state solution with Jerusalem as the shared capital.

"I was in Ausonia in the year '59".
