Hi

It's very hard to tell from the image if they are actually an integral part of the roof structure. As commented, they may be there to prevent roof spread and the whole roof collapsing.

When doing anything with roofs it's best to get things looked at by a structural engineers or builder with the appropriate experience to confirm that they can be safely removed

Kind Regards
