Mysterious graffiti artist Banksy illustrates Gaza debris
GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip - The work of mysterious British graffiti artist Banksy has made an appearance in Gaza.
In a short film posted on his website, the popular street artist appears to have sneaked into Gaza through an underground tunnel from Egypt.
The video combines footage from the Israeli-Hamas war last summer, with political commentary about the coastal strip's misery.
Some of Banksy's work is seen as well, such as a drawing of a Greek goddess cowering against a remaining concrete slab of a destroyed structure.
Banksy publicist Jo Brooks confirmed on Friday that he visited Gaza, getting there through a tunnel. Brooks would not say when.
It's not Banksy first foray into the Mideast conflict. He previously drew a painting of a girl pulled upward by balloons on Israel's West Bank separation barrier.
