A group of Israeli soldiers have been disciplined after posting pictures of themselves in their underwear on Facebook in the latest social media embarrassment to hit Israel's armed forces.
One picture showed four women, who are new recruits, dropping their army trousers to reveal the thongs they were wearing underneath. One woman in the photo was dressed only in her bra and pants. Another image showed five scantily clad recruits wearing only helmets and a small covering of combat equipment.

The pictures received multiple ‘likes’ on Facebook, along with numerous enthusiastic comments. The enthusiasm was not shared by Israel’s commanding military brass, who announced that the women had been given stern “educational lectures” about their future conduct.
In a statement, the Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) said: “The picture in question represents behaviour unbecoming IDF soldiers. The commanding officers disciplined the soldiers as they saw fitting.” The women were undergoing basic training at an infantry training school in southern Israel.
Not the first time
