A group of female Israeli soldiers have been disciplined by the military for posting risqué photos of themselves on Facebook. 



The women were reported to be new recruits posted at a base in southern Israel.

In one shot, four young women pose with their backs to the camera wearing only panties and strategically placed rifles.

Another shows five women in front of barracks clad only in combat harnesses and belts. In a third, two have their pants down while another stands in a bra and panties.

The Israel Defense Forces called it “unbecoming behavior” for soldiers.

“The commanding officers disciplined the soldiers as they saw fitting,” it said. The IDF did not divulge the nature of the punishment.
