He said that the demolitions were carried out without any prior notification, or even ultimatums. The Israeli occupation authorities, explained Mustafa, said that the facilities were demolished because they are located in Area C, which is under Israeli security and administrative control.
Meanwhile, local sources in occupied Jerusalem said that the Israelis also demolished a petrol station on Wednesday morning. No further details were provided.
Palestinian communities in Area " C" remained under threat of demolition because they were unable to issue the necessary licences, which were avoided by demolitions and displacements due to the imposition by the Israeli authorities of lengthy procedures for obtaining licences pic.twitter.com/DVztMEXDBe

The Israelis demolish Palestinian homes and facilities on a daily basis, usually claiming that they have been built without the necessary permits. Israel rarely, if ever, gives such permits to Palestinians, although illegal Jewish settler-colonists are allowed to build and occupy buildings almost at will.
