Israeli Soldiers Party With Palestinians At Nightclub, Get Disciplined

In the West Bank city of Hebron, a group of Israeli soldiers were disciplined after they partied and danced with Palestinians in a nightclub, Al Arabiya English reports.

The video, broadcasted by Israel's Channel 2, and also available on YouTube, shows two troops in uniform, in a crowd of mostly men in jeans and t-shirts, jumping and singing to a remixed version of — can you take a guess? — "Gangnam Style," the K-Pop hit from South Korean artist Psy.

One soldier, on the shoulders of one particularly strong dancer, can be seen holding a rifle while he swings another man's hand.

The army "views this as a serious incident," a military spokesperson said in a statement, according to Reuters.

"The soldiers exposed themselves to unnecessary danger and were disciplined."

The troops have been suspended from duty.

This isn't the first time IDF soldiers have been disciplined for non-military reasons.

A group of female soldiers were disciplined after they posted photos of themselves in underwear and military gear on Facebook, and a flash-mob dance to a Ke$ha song got another group suspended.
