Queen' unveils new Banksy artwork in Palestine to mark Balfour Declaration

A new Banksy artwork to mark 100 years since the Balfour Declaration was unveiled on the Bethlehem Wall on 1 November. The artwork, near Banksy's Walled-off Hotel, which was unveiled during a staged street party by a person dressed as the UK's Queen Elizabeth II, reads, "Er… Sorry". The Balfour Declaration announced the British government's support for the establishment of a "national home for the Jewish people" in Palestine during World War I, which helped pave the way for the UN's partition plan for Palestine.
