Protesters descended on the Israeli embassy in Cairo on Friday, calling for a complete halt in Egyptian cooperation with Israel.

One protester said the demonstration was a response to President Shimon Peres's call for Egyptian youth to normalize relations with Israel, AFP reported.

Positioned on a bridge across from the embassy, demonstrators chanted, "The people demand the cancellation of normalization," according to the report.

Another call of the protesters was to end Egypt's supply of natural gas to Israel. They celebrated the recent bombing of a Sinai gas pipeline that delivers gas to both Israel and Jordan, AFP reported.
