As the notice indicates , the owner may apply for a license, but that does not mean they will approve it. The occupation authorities usually issue halt of work orders on the pretext of building without licenses , the owner apply for a license after preparing a legal file containing his ownership deeds . However, these measurements are a pure formality, they never actually approve licenses for Palestinians.
