Settlements are Internationally recognised as being illegal under International Law. They simply should not be there. Israel also signed agreement to end Settlement construction including natural growth under the ROAD MAP.

Only combatants are allowed in these areas under law. So where does the attack on civilians come into it when legally they are viewed as combatants and legitimate targets.
