Banksy is also sharing new murals in the released video.
First, the black hooded artist stencils a weeping Greek figure that looks like Rodin’s The Thinker. With a hand on her head, the woman appears as if she is weeping. It is titled Bomb damage, Gaza City.

Banksy also painted a cute kitten playing with a coiled ball of rusted metal, as if it were an innocent ball of wool. About the Kitten, painted on the remains of a house destroyed by an Israeli air strike, Banksy explained on his website that a local man came up to him and asked what it meant.
“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”

Another mural shows images of children swinging on a fairground ride, which is actually a surveillance tower.

In a statement to the New York Times Banksy‘s publicist said:
“I don’t want to take sides. But when you see entire suburban neighborhoods reduced to rubble with no hope of a future — what you’re really looking at is a vast outdoor recruitment center for terrorists. And we should probably address this for all our sakes.”
