Israel established more than 280 settlements all around the West Bank, inhabited by more than 440 thousand settlers, divided into 138 settlements and 150 settlement outposts called “farms”.
The settlements in the West Bank take over hundreds of thousands of acres, and have been denied from access by Palestinians. Some of these lands were confiscated by Israel through military orders or announcing them as “state lands” or “fire zones” or even “natural reserves”. Other lands were confiscated by settlers by force through daily violence practiced against Palestinians and their properties.
The state of the occupation takes over Palestinian lands publically and endorsed by the judicial consultants in the occupation government. Settlers also take over lands to achieve their targets using violence against Palestinians. Settlers practice violence supported completely by the occupation state. It is a part of the strategy of the Israeli apartheid system which seeks to take over further Palestinians lands.
Violence of the settlers is part of a governmental policy: the occupation state allowed it and makes it available and participate in implementing it.
