Pope Francis called for dialogue and restraint two days after the killing of a top Iranian military commander by the United States, Reuters reports.

He did not mention Iran by name, during his Sunday prayer in Vatican, but spoke of a terrible air of tension that could now be felt in many parts of the world.

“I call on all sides to keep the flame of dialogue and self-restraint alight and ward off the shadow of hostility. War only brings death and destruction,” the pope said.

As we reported earlier, a missile attack on Baghdad international airport took place on Friday; the shells killed at least seven people and wounded minimum nine.

As a result of the attack on Baghdad international airport, the Iranian General Qasem Suleimani died, he was killed on orders from US President Donald Trump.

The United States will send three thousand soldiers from 82 airborne divisions to the Middle East due to increased tension in relations with Iran. Several thousand protesters attacked the U.S. embassy in Iraq on Tuesday due to US airstrikes that killed more than two dozen pro-Iran fighters at the weekend.
