The anonymous British “graffiti” artist known only as “Banksy” secretly entered the Gaza Strip recently to help bring international attention to the suffering of Palestinian civilians in the Gaza Strip.

Banksy painted huge murals on the walls of civilian homes that were destroyed by Israel during its war on civilians last August.

The Israeli assault on Gaza reportedly resulted in the murder by Israeli soldiers of more than 2,200 Palestinians, most of whom were civilians and non-combatants. About 500 killed were teenagers and children including a dozen or more infants.

More than 100,000 Palestinian civilians, including tens of thousands of children, were made homeless by the Israeli assault which was ordered by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to punish Palestinians for their resistance to Israel’s oppressive embargo and repeated military assaults and missile attacks.

Following the Israeli assault and evacuation of Israel’s military forces, several nationals pledged $5.4 billion to help rebuild Gaza’s civilian society and properties but Israel has blocked the movement of money into the Gaza Strip as a continuation of Israel’s terrorism against Palestinian civilians and possibly in the hopes of provoking another conflict.

Making matters worse is that the weather has been brutally cold and many of the civilian refugees of Israel’s terrorism remain homeless and living on the streets or in the remains of their destroyed homes.

A spokesperson for Banksy reportedly told the international news media that the artist did slip into Gaza through a tunnel to paint the murals which are helping to bring international attention to Israel’s brutality and the continued suffering of the civilians.
