A new video appeared on the website for Channel 2 Tuesday that showed female IDF soldiers dancing partially nude, in the latest addition to the scandal that erupted last week when pictures of female soldiers were distributed posing scantily clad with guns, creating a frenzy with the international media.

The soldiers’ faces were exposed in the recording and they could be seen dancing provocatively in front of the camera half-nude with a gun being used in the fashion of a stripper’s pole.

According to Channel 2, the recording was distributed on social media networks over the past two days.

The person seemingly recording the video can be heard saying she would upload the footage onto Facebook and “tag” those who appear in it.

Last week, a group of female Israeli soldiers were disciplined after photographs of the soldiers posing in their underwear with guns, and with combat helmets (but little else) were uploaded to Facebook.

No word yet on what punishment was meted out. Officials said the base conducted educational lectures in hopes of keeping soldiers from repeating the social media faux pas.

The incident was not the first in which the IDF has been chastised for inappropriate Internet conduct. In 2010, a male soldier was filmed lewdly dancing around a blindfolded Palestinian woman. In February, a male Golani Brigade soldier was reprimanded for posting pictures on Instagram of himself mishandling weapons while in uniform.
