Israeli soldiers in trouble over viral video

A video of Israeli soldiers stopping a patrol in the West Bank to dance to electro-pop singer Kesha's hit 'Tick Tock' has been removed from YouTube. But Israeli TV stations picked it up and showed it repeatedly Monday. The YouTube user who posted it identified the dancers as Israeli infantrymen in the tense Palestinian city of Hebron.

A patrol of Israeli soldiers is facing trouble over a viral video of them dancing on duty to Kesha's hit, 'Tik Tok.'The video shows six Israeli infantrymen patrolling in the Palestinian city of Hebron as a Muslim call to prayer is heard. The music then changes to "Tik Tok," and the patrol breaks into a choreographed dance routine.

The video has been removed from YouTube, but Israeli TV stations picked it up and aired it repeatedly Monday.

The Israeli military called the video a "stunt" and said the troops' commanders have been informed.
