Defense Minister Ehud Barak said that the specialist doctors should be compensated for their hard work, in an interview Thursday morning with Army Radio.

Discussing the health system crisis, Barak said that the Health Ministry should consider re-opening the agreement with the IMA.

"It's always possible to re-discuss agreements - human beings sign them, and they sometimes make mistakes," the Defense Minister explained.

"It's not necessary to pour money on the specialists, but the government needs to sit with the specialists and reach an agreement that is good for everyone," he added.
