Pope Francis says he prays the ceasefire between Israel and Gaza terror groups will hold.

The pontiff says during his Sunday address at the Vatican that “weapons will not bring security and stability” to Israelis and Palestinians.

“On the contrary, they will continue to destroy any hope of peace,” he adds, lamenting that “innocent people, including women and children, have lost their lives.”
