IDF to open probe after troops seen dancing with settlers instead of securing Huwara

Emanuel (Mannie) Fabian is The Times of Israel's military correspondent.

The Israel Defense Forces is expected to probe an incident of soldiers seen dancing with settlers in the West Bank town of Huwara, although it does not immediately issue a statement on the matter.

The video shows settlers celebrating the Purim holiday in Huwara, with some soldiers dancing with them instead of being on guard duty.

Clashes are also reported in the town between settlers and Palestinians, with a number of locals wounded.
