Walk Out for Doctors Across Country

Hundreds of physicians and medical residents walked out of hospitals across the country Wednesday in protest of a potential agreement to end the work dispute between the Israel Medical Association and Israel's finance ministry.

Doctors and residents abandoned their respective departments at Ichilov, Assaf Harofeh, Belinson, Meir, Wolfson, Sheba and Barziliai hospitals.

Staff from Ichilov reportedly took to the streets and marched towards IMA headquarters on Jabotinksy street in Ramat Gan.
