Deputy Health Minister Yaakov Litzman said Tuesday evening that he was considering accepting the resignations of fifteen specialist doctors, putting them into effect immediately, without waiting until the end of the month.

The specialist doctors quit during the day in solidarity with the medical residents.

In response to Litzman's statements, senior doctors threatened to strike at the major hospitals.
