Bansky golpea de nuevo

Graffiti artist Banksy strikes again - in Bethlehem

Last updated at 10:53am on 3rd December 2007

Elusive graffiti artist Banksy has struck again, this time in the Holy Land with a series of stencilled works on the security wall in Bethlehem.

The Bristol-born artist has adorned the West Bank barrier with six new images, including a dove wearing a flak jacket and a soldier being frisked by a young girl.

It coincides with the opening tomorrow of a new exhibition in Bethlehem which is aimed at bringing people to the West Bank to see the situation there first hand.

Banksy has adorned the West Bank barrier with six new images

Banksy has previously painted on the 436-mile long concrete wall that borders large sections of the occupied territories.

Constructed by Israel, the barrier has been condemned by activists and declared illegal by the United Nations.

It now showcases the work of possibly the most well-known and popular graffiti artists around.

Also among the latest additions are a soldier checking the papers of a donkey and one of the artist's trademark rats next to a watch tower.

Banksy, whose work was originally seen in Brighton and London's East End, is one of a number of celebrated graffiti artists who have daubed the West Bank wall over the last few weeks.

Santa's Ghetto will be open from tomorrow to Christmas Eve.

Fans of Banksy, known to include Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, will be able to pick up original work by the artist but will have to visit the exhibition in person.

Banksy said: "If it is safe enough for a bunch of sissy artists then it is safe enough for anyone."
