BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- The Israeli army said Thursday that it would discipline soldiers caught on camera dancing at a Palestinian wedding in Hebron while on duty.
A video of several soldiers, armed and in uniform, dancing at a Palestinian wedding in Hebron was uploaded to YouTube on Monday.
The soldiers were on patrol in the southern West Bank city when they joined the party.
One soldier is lifted onto the shoulders of a Palestinian as they dance to the South Korean rapper Psy's hit Gangnam Style.
"The IDF views this as a serious incident," the army said in an emailed statement.
"The soldiers exposed themselves to unnecessary danger and were disciplined accordingly."
