Amid renewed military action between Israel and the Gaza Strip, a bishop from the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem is lamenting the "vicious circle of violence."
Bishop William Shomali, Vicar of the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem, told Vatican Radio Nov. 15 that it is presently hard to know who started the violence "because everyone condemns the other."
"What is true is that many victims are falling down. Innocent people are dying," he continued, adding that many people on both sides of the fighting are hungry and students cannot go to school.
"Life becomes impossible in that region," he said.
