Friday night, some protesters managed to access a floor in the apartment building where the Israeli embassy offices are housed. Reportedly, the Israeli embassy keeps some of their archives on that floor.

Other protesters managed to lower the Israeli flag.

The Giza police station next to the Israeli embassy was set on fire. Several police vehicles were also set on fire.
