Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas on Monday called on Canada and the international community to “stop Israeli aggressions that violate international law.” He made the appeal during a meeting in Ramallah with Canadian Foreign Minister Marc Garneau. Garneau’s visit to Ramallah came as Abbas continues to face widespread criticism over the death of anti-corruption activist Nizar Banat, who was reportedly beaten to death by PA security officers in Hebron on June 24.

In the past week, thousands of Palestinians have taken to the streets to demand Abbas's removal from office. The protesters have also demanded that those responsible for the death of Banat be brought to justice. The visit also comes amid a stepped-up crackdown by PA security forces on political activists, social media users and journalists in the West Bank.
