London: The Israeli military has punished female soldiers who had posted their pictures wearing underwear on Facebook.
Military chiefs said that women were punished for acting in a manner that showed `unbecoming behaviour` for Israeli soldiers.
According to the Mirror, the female soldiers bared more than their arms which led to them being disciplined by commanders in Israel.
One of the images posted on Facebook showed the women wearing only combat helmets with ammo bags to protect their modesty.
In another picture they were seen topless with backs to the camera and assault rifles slung across their buttocks.
The women, with their faces blurred in the pictures, appeared to be in a barrack room.
Israeli news site Walla said the young women were new recruits on a base in the country`s south, the report added.
