Three IDF soldiers seen disrupting a Palestinian television journalist during a broadcast from the West Bank have been confined to their base for 14 days.

The disciplinary action was taken by the army after the video went viral. In the video, three soldiers can be seen interrupting the female journalist, shaking their heads, with one soldier saying "no" repeatedly in Arabic. The reporter herself can also be seen to suppress laughter during the broadcast.

In May, a group of soldiers serving near the Palestinian city of Jenin were similarly reprimanded for filming a video during a military operation in the West Bank, which then went viral.

The four Paratroopers Brigade soldiers filmed themselves dancing and singing to the catchy pop tune “Golden Boy” while on patrol at the West Bank security barrier.
