A former Israeli soldier’s Facebook page has provoked outrage after she posted pictures of herself on duty posing next to handcuffed, blindfolded Palestinians.

The photographs are part of a Facebook photo album entitled: The Army – the best years of my life, posted by a young woman named Eden, from Ashdod, who completed compulsory military service last year.

The pictures, swiftly circulated by Israeli bloggers, include one in which Eden sits on concrete blocks next to a blindfolded Palestinian detainee. A comment posted beneath the picture by one of Eden’s friends, notes: “You look sexiest here,” to which the former soldier replies: “Yeah I know … I wonder if he’s got Facebook! I have to tag him in the picture!”

The Israeli army issued a statement describing Eden’s Facebook posts as “shameful behaviour”. Israel Defence Forces (IDF) spokesperson, captain Arye Shalicar added: “It was just something very foolish and stupid – and I hoped there wouldn’t be any media interest.”
