Hilltop Youth is a term commonly used to refer to hardline, nationalist youth in Israel. These youth are often noted for establishing illegal outposts outside existing settlements. They are not centrally organized, but they receive assistance from local community councils and state ministries and are protected by the Israeli military.
Members linked to the group have been accused of engaging in Israeli settler violence, including attacks on Palestinian schools and mosques. Radical settlers have long carried out what they call "price tag attacks", a term used for targeting Palestinians in revenge for outposts demolished by the Israeli military.
