[Roughly a quarter of Palestinians are Christian. The US-financed genocide by Israel against the Palestinians is not just a war on Muslims. It is a war on all Palestinians, including Christians. This fact should be raised to those in imperialist countries with Christian populations. –NP]

Gaza: Catholic Church told to evacuate ahead of Israeli bombing

(Independent Catholic News)

The Holy Family Latin Church in Gaza has just received an evacuation order warning them that Israei is planning to bomb their neighbourhood tonight.  In a message,  a priest writes: ” The church of Gaza has received an order to evacuate.. they will bomb the Zeitun area and the people are already fleeing. The problem is that the priest Fr George and the three nuns of Mother Teresa have 29 handicapped children and nine old ladies who can’t move.

“How will they manage to leave?? If anyone can intercede with someone in power, and pray, please do it. We are trying.. may our impotence be taken up by his Omnipotence!!”

The House of Christ in Gaza, is a care home dedicated to looking after disabled children. The disabled children were removed from the care home into the Holy Family Church recently because Israel was targeting the area.

The parish appeal for prayers.
