Hundreds of Egyptian activists gathered in front of the Israeli embassy in Giza calling for the expulsion of the Israeli embassy from the country following Israeli attacks on Gaza and Egypt's border that claimed the lives of at least three security officers.

Activists from different political groups, including the 6th of April movement, stood outside the building where the embassy is located, chanting anti-Israel slogans and demanding justice for the dead civilians and soldiers who lost their lives during the past two days after Israel attacked Gaza.

Many protesters viewed Thursday's violence along the border as an alarming indicator of Israel's plans to dominate the region.

The number of protesters increased throughout the day to express their rage over the government's belligerence.

Hundreds of protesters gathered to demonstrate outside the Israeli embassy in response to the killings of the Egyptian soldiers. The protesters condemned the silence of the interim military government and demanded the ouster of the Israeli Ambassador to Cairo.
