“Stop. Enough,” Pope Francis Calls for Immediate Ceasefire in Gaza

Pope Francis has called to accelerate efforts to reach a cease-fire in Gaza, stating the massive destruction has caused terrible consequences for the small and the defenseless. 

“Is this really how we plan to build a better world? Stop. Enough,” he said, while expressing his desire for the release of hostages and increased humanitarian aid into Gaza.

At least 30,410 Palestinians, mostly women and children, have been killed in Gaza since Oct. 7, 2023, with more than 71,700 injured in the wake of a huge shortage of medical necessities with a few partially functioning hospitals.

The Israeli regime is also deliberately starving Gaza by heavily restricting the flow of food aid into the strip, with Northern Gaza suffering from acute starvation.

Israel has imposed a crippling blockade on Gaza, leaving its population on the verge of starvation. They are simultaneously pushing 85% of Gaza’s population into internal displacement. More than 60% of Gaza’s infrastructure has been damaged or destroyed.
