The Palestinian Authority (PA) yesterday called on the international community to blacklist Israeli settlements and declare armed settlers terrorist organisation.

In a statement, the Foreign Ministry condemned the “crime” carried out by the “terrorist Jewish settlers” in which three Palestinians were wounded, including one who suffered serious injuries.

Jewish settlers threw stones at a Palestinian vehicle yesterday, causing it to crash injuring three passengers.

“Such attacks, which are being carried out by the settler militias across the occupied West Bank, are condemned,” the statement said.

The statement also cited the attack on the Dawabsheh family in the Palestinian village of Duma when settlers burnt a Palestinian house, killing three: parents and a child. The only survivor, Ahmed, has been orphaned and left with severe scars.

According to the statement, the PA held the Israeli government responsible for the daily settler crimes.

The PA said that the Israeli settlers have full protection and support from the Israeli government and politicians.
