Just days after recruits posted revealing snaps of themselves on Facebook, a video of half-naked Israeli female soldiers pole-dancing around an assault rifle has brought further embarrassment to army chiefs.

The 30-second footage leaked online shows the group gyrating provocatively beside each other and also encircling a military-issued firearm.

While some are dressed in their army uniform, some have stripped off for the occasion. Particular focus is given to one woman clad in just a G-string and crop top.

"Dance on the rifle like a slut," one of the women Israeli soldiers can be heard telling another in Hebrew.

The damning footage comes after a group of fresh recruits were reprimanded by the Isreal Defence Forces for posting semi-naked pictures on Facebook of themselves using only combat helmets with ammo bags to protect their modesty.

In the wake of the picture scandal, the military said four soldiers were disciplined for the 'unbecoming behaviour' they showed for the Israeli services.

Military officials declined to identify them or detail the discipline, The Times of Israel reported.

"The commanding officers disciplined the soldiers as they saw fitting,"a spokesperson added.

The racy clip was reportedly filmed inside the military barracks. It is not clear when the incident took place.

Israeli law requires men and women to serve in the military after they turn 18. Women serve for two years, and men for three.
