The United Nations has reacted to a video of a couple having sex in one of its official cars in Israel.
The video which has now gone viral was shot in HaYarkon Street, a major street in Tel Aviv, Israel.
It shows a woman wearing a red dress riding a man in the back seat of a white SUV with United Nation markings.
The vehicle is “likely assigned to the UN Truce Supervision Organisation (UNTSO)”.
According to the report, the people caught on camera are believed to be staff members of a peacekeeping organization in Israel.
The spokesman for the UN’s Secretary-General, Stéphane Dujarric, said they are “shocked and deeply disturbed” by the lewd viral video.
Dujarric said; “We are shocked and deeply disturbed by what is seen on the video.
“The behaviour seen in it is abhorrent and goes against everything that we stand for and have been working to achieve in terms of fighting misconduct by UN staff.
“We became aware of the video a little bit more than two days ago and our colleagues in the Office of Internal Oversight Services (OIOS) were immediately activated.
“Their investigation I know is moving very quickly. We know the location of the incident and the identification of individuals in the video, who are likely assigned to the UNTSO, is close to being completed.
“As part of the UN’s commitment to transparency, the UN will provide updates on the conclusion of the investigation, and any further action.”

The UN has strict policies against sexual misconduct by its staff members, and workers may be punished or likely banned from peacekeeping operations if they are found to breach the rules.
