Pope Francis calls for ‘immediate ceasefire’ in Gaza and the region

Vatikanstadt (AFP) – During his weekly Angelus prayer, Pope Francis calls for “an immediate ceasefire in Gaza and throughout the region”, adding that “disarmament is a moral duty”. Francis’ address comes as Egypt on Sunday hosts envoys for talks on a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas, with heavy fighting ongoing in the nearly five-month-old war.
