The video has become a viral hit

A group of Israeli soldiers will not face disciplinary action after footage of them dancing in uniform to a pop song appeared online.

Six soldiers from the Nahal brigade uploaded a video of them in Hebron performing a routine to the Ke$ha song Tick Tock.

In the “Batallion 50 Rock the Hebron Casbah” video the armed soldiers are patrolling to the sound of the Muslim prayer call, before breaking into the dance sequence when the pop song starts.

After the video became a viral hit it was removed, but a new version has been posted online.
