The Archbishop of Westminster Cardinal Vincent Nichols discusses reports that two women were killed after allegedly being shot by Israeli snipers inside a Catholic church in Gaza.

“It’s certainly a cold-blooded killing,” the most senior Catholic figure in the UK said.

An Israeli military sniper shot and killed two women inside the Holy Family Parish in Gaza City on Saturday, according to the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem.

The Israeli military has denied it targets civilians, with a spokesperson saying: “An initial review suggests that IDF troops, who were operating against Hamas terrorists in the area, operated against a threat that they identified in the area of the church. The IDF is conducting a thorough review of the incident.”
