Israel military faces new Facebook fiasco

Associated Press

JERUSALEM (AP) — The Israeli military is looking more and more like "Girls Gone Wild."

A new video has surfaced on YouTube showing a group of female soldiers dancing suggestively around a rifle in what appears to be a military barracks. One of the young women is wearing little more than her underwear, and a female voice can be heard saying she plans to upload the video to Facebook. Their faces are blurred out.

The move comes days after a group of female Israeli soldiers posing for photos wearing nothing but underwear and combat gear surfaced on Facebook, prompting widespread media coverage.

The military has disciplined a number of soldiers in recent years for posting inappropriate material on social-media sites, saying it does not reflect the army's values.

The army declined comment Thursday.
