In a two-minute documentary released online, world's most famous "elusive" street artist Banksy details the horrors of living in war-torn Gaza.
The legendary unnamed street artist from UK, who seems to have had gone to Gaza undercover, posted the video on his website on Wednesday evening.
The video begins with the message, "Make this the year YOU discover a new destination", and shows the graffiti artist creating several new works in the region.
The video was shot in documentary-style. It started as if it were a travel advertisement, but went on to paint a grim picture of the real life of ordinary Palestinians.
In the clip, a man presumed to be Banksy is seen travelling by car and then climbing up through what he claims is "a network of illegal tunnels" to enter Gaza. The camera then focuses on local children playing in the rubble.
Immediately, a text appears on screen which reads: "The locals like it so much they never leave. Because they're not allowed to." We then see clips of IDF soldiers.
The video contains several statistics on Israel's Operation Protective Edge.
Banksy ends the video with a graffiti message (painted in red): "If we wash our hands of the conflict between the powerful and the powerless we side with the powerful—we don't remain neutral."
The British artist also posted several images of the work he did in Gaza on his website.
Banksy's Gaza graffiti works include a picture of weeping mythical Greek Goddess Niobe with the caption "Bomb damage, Gaza City", and a sketch of children swinging from a watchtower that came with the caption: "Gaza is often described as 'the world's largest open air prison' because no-one is allowed to enter or leave. But that seems a bit unfair to prisons - they don't have their electricity and drinking water cut off randomly almost every day."
He also painted an image of a kitten with a pink bow around its neck, playing with a metal ball. This picture's caption read: "A local man came up and said 'Please - what does this mean?' I explained I wanted to highlight the destruction in Gaza by posting photos on my website – but on the internet people only look at pictures of kittens."
Below is Banksy's video, which has now gone viral on the internet:
According to UN estimates, the bloody conflict in Gaza claimed lives of around 2,100 Palestinians and 72 Israelis.
