An elite Israeli soldier has been jailed for shooting dead a camel in the West Bank.
The young soldier opened fire with a pistol from inside his car as he drove past the animal on a road near the Dead Sea.
A comrade filmed the shooting and they posted the video on the internet but hastily took it down when it began to go viral. The camel was found dead on the side of the road.
Both soldiers are from the Duvdevan unit, which is known for its undercover operations.
They were arrested in December and an Israeli court gag order prevents them from being named.
The man who pulled the trigger was sentenced to four months in prison while the comrade who filmed it was sentenced to two months, according to The Times of Israel.
Both men were demoted to the rank of private.
