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 in to 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 that he visited Gaza, getting there through a tunnel.

It is not Banksy's first foray into the Middle East conflict. He previously drew a painting of a girl pulled upward by balloons on Israel's West Bank separation barrier.
