CAIRO, September 10 (Itar-Tass) —— Demonstrators taking part in protests at the embassy of Israel on Friday entered into the high-rise building, where the diplomatic mission is located on one of the top floors and tore off the flag of the Jewish state. This incident, a second of late, was greeted with glee in the crowd at the bottom of the building. The protesters a few hours earlier destroyed a concrete wall the authorities had built around the diplomatic mission a week ago.
During the mass demonstrations at the embassy on August 21 an Egyptian living in the neighborhood, risking his life, climbed to the roof of a thirteen-storey building and threw down the Israeli flag, instead of which he hoisted the Egyptian tricolor. The young man at once earned the nickname Spiderman.
The reason for the protests at the embassy was the August 18 incident on the border. After terrorist attacks on southern Israel a helicopter gunship, in pursuit of militants, opened fire by mistake and killed five Egyptian police.
Meanwhile, hundreds of protesters are still near the building of the embassy. Anti-Israeli slogans are being chanted. The demonstrators are demanding the authorities should break off all relations with the neighboring country. Their earlier protest action to demolish the high barrier around the embassy has already received the name ‘march of hammers’, during which dozens of young people pounded the concrete wall with heavy hammers and a homemade battering ram made of chains, ropes and a heavy metal pipe. The military police guarding the approaches to the Israeli diplomatic mission did not intervene.
