New information released Sunday about the attack on the Israeli embassy in Cairo revealed that the six Israeli security guards protecting the building enclosed themselves in a room, building a makeshift barricade and when they thought that the protesters were approaching the room, they began to fire shots into the air.

After hours of demonstrating, the mass crowds managed to break down two of the three doors that lead to the room where the Israeli security guards were located.

The security guards heard knocks on the door and shouting from outside.
