Shas spiritual leader Rabbi Ovadia Yosef called Tuesday afternoon for residents in a labor dispute to return to hospitals, but told the government to do "everything" for the doctors, Army Radio reported.

The government "should do everything for the doctors, especially the residents, and find the necessary resources as soon as possible," he said.  In a meeting with Interior Minister Eli Yishai, Yosef highlighted that lives were at stake in the matter.

Hundreds of medical residents resigned after negotiations with the government over working conditions broke down.
