A video of half-naked female Israeli soldiers dancing around a rifle has emerged online - just days after the country’s army was forced to discipline a group of combat women for similarly “unbecoming behaviour”.
The latest footage is shot inside an unidentified barracks and features a group of women – one clad in a g-string and crop top – dancing provocatively around a weapon and spanking each other.
One woman is heard telling the other “dance on the rifle like a slut”, while the camerawoman is heard to say she will post the video on Facebook and tag those taking part.
The clip – in which the women’s faces are pixelated, was aired on Israel's Channel 2 on Tuesday, though it is not known when or where it was shot.
It follows earlier embarrassment for the Israeli Defence Force (IDF) after recruits posted raunchy pictures of themselves on Facebook.
The IDF says it conducted “educational lectures’ in an attempt to stop the behaviour occurring again, adding in a statement: “The commanding officers disciplined the soldiers as they saw fit.”
Members of the IDF are no strangers to social media faux pas.
Last year Sacha Dratwa, the IDF social media director, posted a photo on Facebook of his face covered in mud with the caption "Obama style".
Earlier this year a soldier posted what appeared to be a picture of the back of a Palestinian boy's head in the crosshairs of a sniper rifle was posted in Instagram.
The IDF imposed a ban 2010 on soldiers using social media on bases after pictures emerged of soldiers posing with prisoners.
