An empty frame doorway is seen standing on the rubble of a destroyed building that was damaged in last summer's Israel-Hamas war, without a door painting, presumably painted by British street graffiti artist Banksy, east of Jebaliya, in the northern Gaza Strip, Tuesday, March 31, 2015. Artworks by the elusive British graffiti artist Banksy are typically sold for hundreds of thousands of dollars, but in the Gaza Strip a local painter has succeeded in purchasing a Banksy original for less than $200. The popular street artist is believed to have sneaked into Gaza in February, leaving behind four murals including one drawn on a metal door that depicted a Greek goddess cowering against the rubble of a destroyed house. The painting of the goddess Niobe, titled "Bomb Damage," was drawn on the lone remaining part of a two-story house belonging to the Dardouna family in Jabaliya, northern Gaza Strip. (AP Photo/Adel Hana)GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) — A 33-year-old Gaza man says he has been duped into selling a valuable work by British graffiti artist Banksy for less than $200 to a local artist.
