Hadassah Doctors Protesting Outside PM's Residence


Several hundred doctors from the Hadassah hospitals in Jerusalem are demonstrating outside the Prime Minister's residence in Jerusalem at this time. Chairman of the Doctor's Committee, Dr. Sagit Arbel-Alon, who is among the protestors, offered harsh criticism of ministers Yair Lapid (Yesh Atid) and Yael German (Yesh Atid) for their lack of effort in solving the hospital's financial crisis, and of the government, for not supporting a hospital in the capital.

Dr. Arbel-Alon apologized to the city's residents for there not being an immediate solution to the problem, but "we can't let them bleed us dry."
