PA police blackmails female protesters by posting personal pictures online

Occupied Palestine (QNN)- Palestinian Authority police have been blackmailing female protesters by posting their private pictures on social media following their participating in anti-corruption protests.

After they stole their personal handbags and snatched phones off the hands of female protesters, the PA police have been blackmailing the female protesters online after they participated in anti-government protests against the PA’s force kidnapping and assassination of Palestinian activist Nizar Banat early Thursday.

The forces have posted private pictures of the female protesters on social media, in an attempt to blackmail and intimidate them to suppress their voice.

Local sources also said that the forces were harassing the female protesters while participating in the protests.

Nizar Banat’s killing by the PA’s forces during his arrest has been met with anger on the streets and condemnation from Palestinian factions and human rights organizations.

Nizar is an outspoken critic of the Palestinian Authority who had intended to run in parliamentary elections before they were cancelled earlier this year.

Banat’s health deteriorated when the PA’s force went to arrest him.

He was taken to a hospital where he was later announced dead, as around 25 Palestinian security forces stormed the home where Nizar was staying, blowing out doors and windows, beating Nizar with an iron bar and sprayed pepper spray in his eyes before undressing him and dragging him away to a vehicle.

In response, Palestinians have rallied to the streets to express their anger and condemnation while chanting against the PA president, Mahmoud Abbas.

The protestors have also called to conduct a comprehensive investigation into what happened and to ensure that those responsible for Banat’s death were punished.

“We call for the killers to be prosecuted,” they chanted.

However, the PA forces were suppressing the protesters and violently attacked them.

The PA police and security forces were also seen dressed in civilian clothes, attacked journalists and protesters and broke cameras and prevented journalists from covering the protest.
