Pope Francis: Two-state solution essential for Israel and Palestine

Date:

Pope Francis has said that a two-state solution is necessary to end wars like the current one between Israel and Palestine, and that Jerusalem should be given special status..

In an interview with the TG1 news channel affiliated with official Italian television (RAI), the pope said he hoped to avoid territorial escalation in the conflict that began after Hamas militants attacked Israel and killed around 1,400 Israelis. 230 hostages.

In an interview with Roy TV, Pope Francis added, “(These are) two peoples who have to live together. And the wisest solution is… two states. Two states with the Oslo Accords, clear borders and special status. For Jerusalem.”

“The war in the Holy Land scares me,” Pope Francis said, “how will these people end this story?”.

Escalation, he said, “represents the end of many things and many lives.”“.

The pope, who has called for humanitarian corridors and a ceasefire to help Gaza’s residents, said he speaks daily by phone to the monks and nuns who oversee the diocese of Gaza, which is home to 560 people, most of whom are Christian, but some of whom are Muslim..

He said, “We thank God that the Israeli forces have respected this diocese so far.”

He said he was concerned about the rise of anti-Semitism, and that much of it was “hidden”.

He said people should not forget the war between Israel and Hamas and other conflicts in Ukraine, Syria, Yemen and Myanmar..
