A video has surfaced online of a few IDF soldiers, sporting full military attire, dancing with Palestinians at a wedding celebration in Hebron, displaying yet another way Israelis and Palestinians can unite with one another, through song and dance.

According to a report from Haaretz, the soldiers, from the Givati Brigade, were most likely responding to a loud noise complaint in the Hebron neighbourhood, when they discovered a party in the making.

Rather than following what the IDF have claimed is proper protocol, the soldiers joined in on the celebrations, and danced with the wedding guests in attendance to the international smash hit "Gangnam Style" by PSY.

As they were dressed in full military attire, including helmets, vests, guns, and the like, it was certainly not something you'd see every day, and naturally, the scene was caught by many with their smartphones.

Eventually, the video, titled "Israeli soldiers dancing at a Palestinian wedding in Hebron," shows the guests even hoist the IDF soldiers on their shoulders, and dance for many more minutes to come.

According to Haaretz, an IDF official statement read "the clip has been taken down from the web, and the soldiers that were involved and participated in the party have been suspended pending an investigation."

However, despite the IDF not being pleased with the clip, and though one could argue the decision was perhaps irresponsible, the video can also be seen as a declaration of unity, solidarity, and friendship. It also displays the power of music, or rather, the power of 'Gangnam Style'.
