Vatican City, May 16 - Pope Francis on Wednesday
called for the end of the wave of violence in the Holy Land and
appealed for the opening of talks.
"I am very worried about and pained by the intensification of
tension in the Holy Land and the Middle East and the spiral of
violence that increasingly moves peace, dialogue and
negotiations further away," he said.
"I express my great pain for the deaths and injuries... and
reiterate that the use of violence never leads to peace.
"War calls war, violence calls violence.
"I invite all the parties involved and the international
community to renew the commitment so that dialogue, justice and
peace prevail".
Dozens of Palestinians were killed when Israeli troops fired
during protests in Gaza on Monday, the day the United States
made the controversial move of its embassy from Tel Aviv to
Jerusalem.
