Vatican’s Pope expresses regret over casualties of war in Gaza and Ukraine

Pope Francis Urges for Peace in Gaza and Ukraine: Condemns ‘Folly of War’ Amid Ongoing Violence

Pope Francis of the Vatican made a plea for peace in Gaza and Ukraine on Wednesday, condemning the “folly of war.” He expressed deep regret over the killing of aid workers in Gaza and praised a Ukrainian soldier who lost his life in the conflict with Russia.

In his sermon, Pope Francis held the belongings of a Ukrainian soldier named Oleksandr, who died at the age of 23 in February. He urged everyone to pause and reflect on the senselessness of war and to pray for those who have lost their lives. The soldier’s story serves as a reminder of the destruction caused by conflict and the need for peace.

Seven aid workers from the World Central Kitchen charity were tragically killed in Gaza, described by the Israeli Prime Minister as unintentional and tragic. Pope Francis offered his condolences to the families of the victims and called for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza, the release of Israeli detainees, and access to humanitarian aid.

The Pope’s appeal for peace comes amidst ongoing violence in both Gaza and Ukraine, with civilians and aid workers being caught in the crossfire. As the world continues to witness the devastating effects of war, his message serves as a reminder of the importance of dialogue, compassion, and humanity in resolving conflicts and building a more peaceful world.
