Why is "illegal occupation of Palestine” in quotes? It is illegal.

We were reprinting a longer sentence in the article quoting the exact subject of the lecture: on “the importance of BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) in helping to end Israeli apartheid and the illegal occupation of Palestine.” The quote marks were in the sentence already. Just didn't have room for the whole sentence. Didn't mean to voice any opinion.
