Israel-Hamas conflict: Pope urges communication

Pope Francis has called on Israel and the Palestinians to find a solution at the negotiating table.

The 86-year-old Catholic pontiff strongly advocated a two-state solution, one for Israel and one for the Palestinians.

He said, “Every war is a defeat. Nothing is solved by war. Everything is gained through peace and dialogue.

“In war, one slap in the face provokes another. A strong one and then another stronger one, and it goes on,” Francis said.

“However, it is about two people who must live together.

“There is a “clever solution” for this: ‘Two people, two states. The Oslo Accords state: two well-limited states and Jerusalem with a special status’.”

Francis was referring to the Oslo peace process between Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), which began in 1993.
