Pope condemns Gaza killings, says Mideast needs justice, peace

Pope Francis on Wednesday condemned the killing of Palestinians near the Gaza-Israel border, saying the deaths would only lead to more violence, and appealed for dialogue to bring justice and peace to the Middle East.


"I express my great pain for the dead and wounded and I am close in prayer and affection to all those who are suffering," he told tens of thousands of people at his general audience in St. Peter's Square.


"I repeat that the use of violence never leads to peace. War begets war and violence begets violence."
