SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

JERUSALEM (JTA) — A YouTube video of  Israeli soldiers dancing on a deserted street in Hebron has gone viral and may result in disciplinary action.

The clip shows six soldiers from the Nahal Brigade in full battle gear walking down an empty street with the sound of a muezzin calling Muslims to prayer in the background.

The soldiers then begin a one-minute choreographed dance to the Kesha song "Tik Tok."

The clip was removed Monday by its original poster, where it was titled "Israeli soldiers rock the Casbah in Hebron," but has reappeared on YouTube as well as on Facebook and other websites.

The soldiers involved are expected to be punished for inappropriate conduct during a military operation, Haaretz reported.
