The Palestinian Authority (PA) called on states worldwide to enlist members of settlement organisations and groups on terror lists, a statement issued by the Foreign Ministry said.

Settlement groups and their armed members should be added to terror lists as a result of their “aggression on Palestinians citizens,” the statement said, reiterating that they should be prosecuted and prevented from travelling freely.

In the statement, the PA Foreign Ministry said that “it is following up on the daily details of settler aggression in order to raise the issue with the International Criminal Court and ask it to start its investigations into the occupation and settler crimes.”

Settler “aggression is being carried out under the protection of the Israeli occupation forces,” the Foreign Ministry explained.
