      Land Day turned violent Friday when Arabs began hurling Molotov cocktails and stones at soldiers near the Kalandia checkpoint north of Jerusalem, and Bethlehem to the south.

      A video taken by IDF soldiers in a watchtower in Bethlehem showed rioters massing at the security fence and hurling stones and firebombs at their position.

      The soldiers inside can be heard reporting a "balagan" – great chaos or confusion – to their commanders and calling for reinforcements via radio while taking video with their personal smart phones.
