Israeli soldiers disciplined for dancing with Palestinians
Friendly gesture at wedding party leads to trouble
A group of Israeli soldiers danced up a storm of criticism after they were filmed boogying alongside Palestinians while on patrol in the West Bank.
The soldiers were making the rounds in the city of Hebron when they entered a dance hall and joined dozens of Palestinian men dancing to the hit "Gangnam Style."
The Israeli military said Thursday it considers the incident "serious," adding "the soldiers exposed themselves to unnecessary danger and were disciplined accordingly," without elaborating.
Footage aired on Israeli Channel 2 TV shows the solders in uniform, flak jackets and carrying guns. One was shown hoisted on the shoulders of Palestinian dancers. Other soldiers joined hands and grooved with the partygoers. The channel said the incident occurred Monday.
Hebron has been a flashpoint of violence between Jews and Palestinians for decades.
