An aluminum tube that was supposed to serve as a brake for a new light rail in the northern West Bank village of Gush Etzion has been stripped away.
The tube, which had been installed on a highway near the village of Adas in 2014, had been the focus of several protests, but the decision to strip it was met with some protests.
The Gushet Adas, a village in the southern West Bank, has seen several protests in recent years over construction of the highway.
The protest was triggered by the removal of the light rail to make way for a road, and the residents were among the first to protest.
The protest was not the first time that aluminum tubes had been removed from the Gushetz Adas.
In 2014, Israeli officials removed an aluminum tube from a bridge in the village and later said that the aluminum had been fabricated with an unknown quantity of aluminum.
The aluminum was said to be used in a wheel.
