JERUSALEM (JTA) — Three Israeli soldiers who interrupted a Palestinian news reporter during a broadcast from the West Bank were punished by the military.
The soldiers were ordered confined to their military base for 14 days after a video of their antics was viewed thousands of times on social media.
Standing first behind and then alongside the female reporter, the soldiers are seen shaking their heads, making rabbit ears with their fingers and saying “no” in Arabic. At times, the reporter appears to be trying not to laugh.
The Israel Defense Forces said the soldiers did not display proper conduct in front of the media.
