Israeli Settlements (Public Board)

I have always taken the phrase "Israeli settlements" to indicate what are basically suburban enclaves for Jewish Israelis that function as tiny colonies in the hostile parts of Israel. They are established to expand or validate territorial land claims, like planting flags but permanent, and occupied so they are always "manned". I believe this is always the intention of the word "settlement" in this context. Basically if you will to create "squatter's rights".

NEVER EVER as housing beneficial to Palestinians or others. Settlements are intended as an adversarial poke into hostile territory in dispute.
