The demonstrators threw documents out the windows of the embassy building and also torched a police car. 

The crowd managed to break into the embassy building despite the presence of heavily armed Egyptian security forces in the area. 

Gunfire was also heard near the embassy. 

A protester tore down the Israeli flag at the embassy, to the cheers of thousands of demonstrators on the scene. 

Last month, another Egyptian protester became a national hero after he climbed up the wall of the Israeli embassy, took down the Israeli flag, and hoisted an Egyptian flag in its place during a demonstration held to condemn Israel for killing a number of Egyptian policemen on the border. 

Five Egyptian border police officers were killed on August 18 in an attack by Israeli forces. 

On Friday, the Egyptian demonstrators also called for the expulsion of the Israeli ambassador and chanted anti-Israeli slogans. 

Meanwhile, tens of thousands of Egyptians once again gathered at the iconic Liberation Square in Cairo to demand that the military government hand over power to a civilian administration. The protesters gathered in the square after Friday prayers to participate in the "Correcting the Path" demonstration.
