Pope condemns aid worker killings as he calls for peace in Gaza and Ukraine

| Wednesday 03 April 2024

Pope Francis has made a new appeal for peace in Gaza and Ukraine, condemning the killing of aid workers in an Israeli air strike while also paying tribute to a Ukrainian soldier who died in the war against Russia.

“I express deep regret for the volunteers killed while they were engaged in distributing humanitarian aid in Gaza. I pray for them and their families,” Francis said.

He renewed his call for an “immediate” Gaza ceasefire, the release of all captives held by Hamas and full access for humanitarian aid as he warned against “irresponsible” widening of the conflict.
