Jewish Press: The legality of the settlements, in fact, largely hinges on whether the disputed territories are occupied. Article 49(6) of the Fourth Geneva Convention prohibits an occupying power from deporting or transferring its population into occupied territory.

There is good reason to believe this is the case here.
