The British artist Banksy has painted new murals on the West Bank barrier which runs beside Bethlehem.
The artist's work famously takes an ironic look at politics. Here, in the town of Jesus's birth, an Israeli soldier examines the ID card of the Christmas donkey.
A rat is considered the artist's trademark. Here one of the animals stands close to an Israeli checkpoint with a slingshot, symbol of Palestinian resistance.
The artist - who does not give interviews - said through his PR spokeswoman that he hoped the art would "attract tourists to Bethlehem".
The murals are part of an exhibition in Bethlehem opening on Monday. Several other international and Palestinian artists are taking part.
This Banksy exhibit has sparked controversy. This wounded cherub work has been mistakenly identified as Jesus by some, despite denials by Banksy's PR people.
This installation is by local Palestinian artist Trash, expressing the frustrations of Palestinians about the barrier.
Banksy first used the West Bank barrier as his canvas in 2005. Israel says the structure is a security measure but Palestinians condemn it as a land grab.
