Led by Mousa Abu Maria, son of the land owner Abdelhamid Abu Maria, the group made their way to the electricity towers. They then hoisted a Palestinian flag between the towers, flying high above Route 60 for the settlers of Gush Etzion (for whom the new electricity line is presumably being built). They also “decorated” the tower, built on Abu Maria’s land, with slogans, including “free Palestine” and “settlers=Thieves”.
