Palestinian political activists have called for holding another protest in Ramallah on Sunday afternoon to demand that those responsible for the death of Palestinian Authority critic Nizar Banat be held accountable. The activists said that they will also protest against the ongoing PA security crackdown against political opponents, social media users and journalists in the West Bank. Last week, PA security forces banned a similar protest that was supposed to take place in the center of Ramallah and detained several activists. Some of the protesters, including five women, later complained that they had been beaten, sexually harassed and detained by PA security officers. Banat, a prominent critic of the PA, was pronounced dead shortly after more than 20 Palestinian officers raided the house where he was sleeping in Hebron on June 24. His family accused the officers of beating him to death with rifle butts and iron bars.
