Beatings, ripping out soldiers' leg hairs and spreading hot sauce on their arms were just some of the initiation techniques used by seven junior Israel Air Force officers jailed by the IDF this week.

The IDF said these hazing ceremonies took place at a IAF radar station unit in the South and had been going on for years and took place most recently this past weekend.

The soldiers beat the new recruits, tied their hands in plastic handcuffs, stuffed garlic in their mouths, pulled out hairs from their legs and spread hot sauce on their arms, IDF sources said.

The seven hazers, all lieutenants, were involved in recent years in the violent initiation ceremonies for new recruits in the IAF's Air Control Division at its base near Mitzpe Ramon. This radar station recently won an award from President Shimon Peres.

News of the hazing in the IAF follows disciplinary action that was taken last week against a number of commanders in Battalion 74 of the 188th Armored Brigade who held similar rituals for new recruits.

During the hazing in Battalion 74, recruits were beaten and humiliated. Pictures and footage showed the troops blindfolded and with their hands tied behind their backs. The bodies of some of the soldiers showed signs of severe physical abuse.

Meanwhile Thursday, The Jerusalem Post learned that five soldiers from the 401st Armored Brigade's reconnaissance unit were expelled from their unit and confined to base after they abused soldiers during a training exercise.
At least Palestinian terrorists would now how they would be welcomed...

Sheesh! Anyone would think this was a story about Russian soldiers . . . . . . oh, hang on, Russians REALLY beat the sh!t out of new recruits, passed recruits, new guys in the units, and even guys who've been there for years.

It's rather odd that you, a Russian, would point out bullying in another armed force KGB - the Russians are world record holders for abuse.

Try reading the book by Arkady Babchenko about the Russians in Chechnya, in which he describes in highly graphic detail what it is like to serve in Russia's army.

You'd think it was the Russian conscripts who were the enemy, not the Chechnyans.

Sounds a bit like joining a University rugby club really, just a little tamer
