At least 200 medical students from all departments staged a protest outside of Ichilov Hospital in Tel Aviv on Friday, demanding improvements in Israel's healthcare system.

According to demonstrators, they have joined residents who, late Wednesday night, received an injunction against their protest by the National Labor Court for not coordinating their strike with the Israel Medical Authority.

At least 322 of the 400 students in their sixth year of medical school signed a petition saying they would not begin their residencies next year unless better conditions were implemented.

Demonstrators said the protest at Ichilov was only the first step, and that they plan on bringing their requests next to the Finance and Health ministries, Israeli media reported.
