Israeli soldiers disciplined for dancing with Palestinians

A group of Israeli soldiers who were filmed dancing to Gangnam Style with Palestinians while on patrol in the West Bank have been disciplined by their superiors.

The Israeli military said it considered the incident "serious" and added: "The soldiers exposed themselves to unnecessary danger and were disciplined accordingly".

The footage, posted on YouTube and aired on Israeli TV, showed the armed soldiers in uniform dancing hand in hand and on the shoulders of Palestinian partygoers in Hebron, a common flashpoint for violence in the conflict.

One YouTube commenter suggested the soldiers should be nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.
