The National Labor Court suspended doctors' resignation letters on Wednesday afternoon in response to the state's request for an emergency hearing.

National Labor Court President Judge Nili Arad ruled that a hearing will be held in response to the state's request on Thursday afternoon.

The state's request came after residents refused Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's request to hold back on resignations for several days in order to negotiate a solution to the health system crisis.

Judge Arad also ordered both sides to submit a written update of their progress in negotiations.

The state was also ordered to submit reports from managers of those hospitals named as being affected by planned resignations on Thursday. The court also ordered the managers to attend Thursday's hearing.
