Media reports say that the Israeli Embassy in Cairo has been shut down following the transfer of power from Hosni Mubarak to the Egyptian military.
The report comes while a senior Israeli official said earlier on Friday that it was too soon to speculate about the consequences of Mubarak’s resignation.
“It’s too early to foresee how (the resignation) will affect things,” the official was quoted by Reuters as saying.
The report followed the transfer of power from Mubarak to the Supreme Council of the Egyptian Armed Forces, which is headed by Defence Minister Gen. Mohammed Tantawi.
Egypt’s main opposition party, the Muslim Brotherhood, called for the establishment of a civilian government and constitution that “guarantees freedom and human rights.”
The transition of power to the military comes while Mubarak, Vice President Omar Suleiman and Prime Minister Ahmad Shafiq are all former military men. Analysts believe despite the transition Mubarak would still remain in power.
This is while millions of Egyptians have for the past 18 days called for the departure of Mubarak and the establishment of a democratic government.
Earlier in the day vigilantes opened fire on pro-democracy protesters in Egypt in a move unprecedented over the past couple of days.
The shooting in El-Kharga came as protestors took over several government buildings in major cities across Egypt on Friday. The last time that live bullets were used against protesters was on Wednesday, when six protesters were killed and hundreds of others were injured — some of them critically.
Reports say protesters have also clashed with security forces and attacked police stations in El-Arish.
