Peres: Nurses’ Strike Can’t Continue

President Shimon Peres spoke Wednesday about the ongoing nurses’ strike. “A nurses’ strike must not last longer than one day, because it hurts the sick and children,” he declared.

However, he said, the Labor Court that supported the nurses’ right to strike was not wrong. “We must respect the verdict and bring this crisis to an end,” he said.

It was reported Wednesday that at least 6,000 surgeries, 3,000 vaccinations and 20,000 check-ups have been cancelled due to the strike.
