Doctors' Sanctions, March on Jerusalem Continues

Doctors will continue their sanctions Thursday, and will continue to protest their dissatisfaction over a proposed deal on work hours and salaries. Surgeons will perform only emergency work, and conduct operations only on oncological patients, the union representing doctors said Wednesday night.

Meanwhile, the march by doctors from Ramat Gan to Jerusalem continues. The final leg of the long walk is set to take place, as protesting doctors march from the Shimshon Junction to the Prime Minister's Office, where they will conduct a mass rally.
