Only six of the 41 Israel Railway train drivers, that called in sick on Wednesday in an apparent strike over new work arrangements, returned to work on Thursday, Army Radio reported.

After a long list of train cancellations on Wednesday, Israel Railways said that some 100 trains would be cancelled on Thursday due to the strike, disrupting the lives of thousands of citizens and soldiers making their way home for the weekend.

On Wednesday, Israel Railways management issued letters to the employees urging them to return to work.
