This came during a meeting held in Ramallah to discuss the issue of the continuous aggression of Israeli settlers on Palestinian villages and properties near illegal settlements across the occupied West Bank.

In a statement, the UNLPR said: "In light of the escalating occupation and settler aggression, continuous daily attacks and continuation of killing Palestinian civilians, it becomes necessary to form popular committees to protect the Palestinian people and their properties."

The UNLPR stressed that the Israeli occupation regime "is carrying out systematic state terrorism in order to impose the occupation's realities on the ground."

"The Israeli attempts to enact new racist laws targeting our prisoners through execution, revoking identities and expulsion" from their homes and their country, it added.

"All of this comes with American support and a paralyzed international community which is unable to carry out a boycott or hand Israeli officials over to the International Criminal Court in an attempt to end the daily Israeli aggression," the statement said.

Illegal Israeli settlers have recently escalated their aggression on Palestinians and their properties in the occupied West Bank. While the occupation state's government has also increased restrictions on Palestinian prisoners.
