Israeli Embassy staff to return to work from new location in Egypt



Several members of the Israeli diplomatic mission in Cairo will return this week to resume work, having left Egypt following the storming of the Israeli Embassy in Cairo.

According to Israeli radio stations on Sunday, the Israeli diplomats will not work at the Israeli Embassy in Giza, but at an alternative location.
 
After a mass demonstration in support of Egypt's revolution in Tahrir Square on 9 September, a number of protesters marched to Giza and dramatically stormed the embassy. Thousands had gathered outside it throughout the day and demolished the concrete wall recently built to protect it.
 
This incident came not long after six Egyptian security personnel were killed by Israeli forces on 18 August.
