Headline: ASIA/HOLY LAND – A parish priest in Jerusalem: “Israelis and Palestinians expect solid and lasting peace”
Jerusalem – “The heartfelt invitation of the Holy Father to end armed conflicts around the world has been greeted with great joy and hope by Israelis and Palestinians, who have long been waiting for a moment of lasting peace. There are currently no clashes, but a state of deep mistrust remains between the two populations”. This is what Fr. Amjad Sabbara, belonging to the Order of Friars Minor and parish priest of the Latin Church of San Salvatore in Jerusalem, reports to Agenzia Fides about the appeal to the “global ceasefire” launched by the UN Secretary General Antonio Gutierres, and officially supported on 29 March, by Pope Francis, while the world faces the crisis of the Covid-19 pandemic.
