Caregivers working at hospices for Holocaust survivors in Shaare Menashe and Be'er Ya'akov joined the strike that began on Thursday at the hospice in Pardesiya, Army Radio reported.

The protesters have been demanding to be absorbed as state employees and to stop the privatization of the hostels.

During the strike, patients at these institutions were attended to by emergency crews, comprising a reduced number of staff, without compromising on the quality of the treatment and cleaning services.

In response, the Finance Ministry expressed regret that the employees were "trying to promote their personal affairs."
