Israel army says investigating dancing soldiers

Bethlehem - Ma'an - Palestinians in Hebron who complain that the Israeli soldiers patrolling the southern West Bank city rarely intervene to stop settler violence may now know why.

Israel's army says it is investigating the source of a video showing soldiers breaking into choreographed dance on a road in Hebron. The video, which appeared online over the weekend and on Israeli TV, depicts the six soldiers performing in sync to US pop singer Ke$ha's "Tick Tock" hit.

In response to a Ma'an inquiry, the military said in a statement that "The item in question was a joke carried out by soldiers. The matter is currently being examined by the battalion commander."
