Over 1,000 residents staged a mass resignation on Tuesday over the ongoing labor dispute, telling a press conference that the treasury's salary offer was "humiliating."
Dr Nadav Haim, who represents residents at Tel Hashomer hospital, told the press "as doctors we have a public responsibility to ensure a better
medical future for future generations."
He added that although the residents love their profession, they cannot continue working under the current conditions.
Their resignations will take effect in 30 days, meaning that the residents will be able to retract their resignations should progress in negotiations be made.
