Pope Francis is planning to facilitate a humanitarian gesture towards both Israel and Palestine as the IDF’s war against Hamas continues in Gaza.
The Bishop of Rome will meet with the families of Israeli hostages and then a delegation of Palestinians.
The Pontiff will take the two meetings separately on Wednesday inside the Vatican.
It is expected he will use both meetings to try and push for the release of more hostages as well as a ceasefire.
The Vatican says these two points are fundamental to resolving this crisis.
