“I ask that the hostages be released immediately,” the 86-year-old head of the worldwide Catholic Church mentioned on the finish of his weekly viewers on the Vatican.

He added: “It is the right of those who are attacked to defend themselves, but I am very worried about the total siege in which the Palestinians live in Gaza, where there have also been many innocent victims.”

“Terrorism and extremism do not help reach a solution to the conflict between the Israelis and Palestinians, but fuel hatred, violence, revenge and only make both sides suffer.”

“The Middle East does not need war but peace, a peace built on justice, dialogue and the courage of fraternity.”

The demise toll from 5 days of ferocious combating between Hamas and Israel rose sharply in a single day as Israel saved up its bombardment of Gaza Wednesday.
