IDF looking into dancing soldier video

By Jennifer Lipman, October 5, 2010

Israel has condemned the perpetrator of a video that appears to show a soldier dancing next to a blindfolded Palestinian.

An IDF investigation has been launched into the clip, which features a woman in a headscarf and black robe.

The video was filmed and uploaded on to the internet in 2008 but only emerged this week,

An IDF spokesman said: “This will be done in any case that raises suspicions of similar conduct in the future."

"The IDF condemns this kind of activity and has worked and is working to eradicate it via briefings to soldiers, instructions to commanders, military orders, and punishment where necessary.

“The clips do not depict the norm, but rather, are anomalies.”
