Group of women are said to be new recruits based in southern Israel .
Pictures show them dressed only in their underwear and combat fatigues .
Israeli military said they were disciplined for their 'unbecoming behaviour'.
Dressed only in their underwear and provocatively holding weapons for the camera, they appear to be having a great time posing for photographs in their barracks room.
But four Israeli female soldiers have now been disciplined by the country's military for their 'unbecoming behaviour' after the raunchy pictures were posted on Facebook.
The images, published on Israeli news website Walla, showed the soldiers removing their fatigues to expose their underwear and backsides.
In another, five women posed in what appeared to be a barracks room, dressed only in helmets and a small amount of combat equipment.
Walla, which blurred the faces of the women, said they were new recruits stationed on a base in southern Israel.
The incident is the latest in a string of episodes involving young Israeli soldiers on social media that have drawn reprimand from the military.
In a statement, the military said the women had acted in a manner showing 'unbecoming behaviour' for Israeli soldiers, adding: 'The commanding officers disciplined the soldiers as they saw fitting.'
The statement did not identify the soldiers or give any details about the punishments. Military officials said the base conducted educational lectures to keep soldiers from repeating the offence.
Several times in recent years, the Israeli military has disciplined soldiers for what were considered improper postings in social media sites.
Last year, the social media chief for the Israel Defence Force was branded 'racist' after posting a picture on Facebook of his face covered in mud alongside the caption 'Obama style'.
Lt. Sacha Dratwa faced a barrage of abuse for the picture, which appeared to show him swimming in the Dead Sea, and denied he was racist.
A male Israeli soldier was also condemned after being filmed dancing suggestively around a blindfolded Palestinian woman in a video posted to YouTube in 2010.
