Israel to Destroy "illegal" Solar Panels in Palestinian Villages

The Israeli Occupation authorities are planning to demolish renewable energy installations in Palestinian villages in the Occupied West Bank. The projects were installed by an Israeli NGO, ME Comet, and paid for by German aid.

Although the Israeli government of PM Binyamin Netanyahu says the projects must be torn down because they have no permit, one shouldn’t have to have a permit to have electricity. Moreover, the government deliberately does not give Palestinians building permits, because it wants them to emigrate. The Guardian writes:

“According to figures from the civil administration quoted by the pressure group Peace Now, 91 permits were issued for Palestinian construction in Area C between 2001 and 2007. In the same period, more than 10,000 Israeli settlement units were built and 1,663 Palestinian structures demolished.”
