Palestinians are protesting across the West Bank. In major cities like Ramallah and Hebron, people have been turning out to demonstrate against the Palestinian Authority after anti-corruption activist Nizar Banat died in PA custody; Banat was reportedly brutally beaten by security forces during his arrest last week.
