Hundreds of doctors interns were expected to arrive outside the Knesset Sunday morning after marching from Hadassa Ein-Kerem Hospital where they were to be joined by thousands of doctors and medical interns to stage a protest outside the legislative building in its Rose Garden. The demonstrators were demanding that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu intervene in the ongoing health crisis and labor dispute.

Head of the IMA's negotiation unit Dr. Ze'ev Feldman told Army Radio that as soon as Netanyahu steps into the negotiations, it will be possible to conclude talks within a short time.

Later Sunday morning, President Shimon Peres was scheduled to hold a meeting with Israel Medical Association chairman Dr. Leonid Eidelman, who was heading a delegation of health clinic and hospital chiefs at Beit Hanassi in Jerusalem. Eidelman was expected to present Peres with an explanation of the problems facing the public health system and present him with proposals for improve the situation of doctors in Israel.
