Representative of medical residents told reporters Monday morning that he and other residents have decided to resign, speaking at a press conference that followed reports that hundred of residents had not shown up for work earlier in the morning.
"My friends and I have decided to resign," representative Dr. Gabi Heran said, calling on the labor courts not to order them back to work.
"We respect the court," Heran continued, "far more than Finance Ministry wages supervisor Ilan Levin. Today we will ask the court not to issue an injunction or confinement."
"It is not the doctors that led us to this depressing situation," he added. "It is the state that needs to take responsibility for her actions."
