Pope Francis on Tuesday expressed his grief over the missile attacks in recent days on the main children's hospital in the capital Ukraine and at a school housing displaced Palestinian families in central Gaza.

"The Holy Father learned with great sorrow the news of attacks on two medical centers in Kiev, including the largest children's hospital in Ukraine, and also for a school in Gaza. The Pope expresses his deep sorrow at the increase in violence"— the Vatican said in a statement, reports Reuters.

On Monday, July 8, the head of the UN human rights monitoring mission said that the attack on a hospital in Ukraine was likely caused by a direct hit from a Russian missile.

On Saturday, July 6, according to the Gaza Strip's health ministry, at least 16 people were killed in an Israeli strike on a school in central Gaza, which Israel said was aimed at militants.

In his statement, the Pope also repeated his desire to find real ways to end the current conflicts.
