Health Minister Ya'acov Ben-Yizri appealed to Internal Security Minister Avi Dichter on Sunday to hold an urgent discussion on the subject of violence against doctors - a problem that has become prevalent lately. Ben-Yizri noted that "security personnel in hospitals don't have the security to arrest offenders, and therefore, the lives of the doctors and nurses are forfeit." The health minister added that he planned to put the subject at the top of the ministry's agenda.
