I would think, the Israeli Defence Forces had more serious problems to deal with. But apparently they don’t. According to Israeli media, IDF investigates claims that sailors who participated on a naval exercise last month in Greece, visited local brothels and even had sex. I don’t know the IDF concept on sailors & ports, but I believe that sex-free and powerful Popeye was a unique and exceptional case of a sailor for children just to eat their spinach.
Navy Sailors in Hot Water Over Visit to Greek Brothel
“The Israel Defense Forces is investigating claims that sailors who serve on naval missile boats had sex with a prostitute at a Greek brothel during a break from training last month.
They were then awarded a medal by their superiors for losing their virginity, according to the website of the Maariv daily.
“The claims will be fully investigated, and if they are found to be accurate, this is a serious ethical incident that will be dealt with severely, as required,” the IDF said in a statement.
The incident allegedly took place during free time sailors received after completing a joint training exercise with the Greek navy and docking at the Athenian port of Piraeus. When they returned to the boat, it was said, the sailors told everyone aboard what happened.
The Israeli sailors attended a reception that featured the attendance of the Greek defense minister, Panos Panagiotopoulos, and chief of staff.” (Full article Haaretz)
