Pope Benedict XVI on Sunday denounced Palestinian factional fighting and rocket attacks on Israeli periphery communities, which provoked Israel's armed retaliation, and appealed in God's name for an end to the violence. "The clashes among Palestinian factions in the Gaza Strip and the rocket attacks against inhabitants of the nearby Israeli cities, which prompted armed intervention, are provoking a bloody deterioration of the situation," Benedict told pilgrims in St. Peter's Square.
