The BBC reports that the nine paintings have been created on the Palenstinian side of the barrier. One depicts a hole in the wall with an idyllic beach, while another shows a mountain landscape on the other side.
Banksy’s spokeswoman Jo Brooks said, “The Israeli security forces did shoot in the air threateningly and there were quite a few guns pointed at him.”
The 425 mile long barrier, made of concrete walls and razor-wire electric fences, is still being constructed by the Israeli authorities. Israel says that the barrier is necessary to protect the country from suicide bombers, but the International Court of Justice has said that it breaches international law.
Banksy describes the wall as “the ultimate activity holiday destination for graffiti writers.”
