Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu called on medical residents to return immediately to their hospitals as representatives of the residents informed the High Court that they were willing to enter into negotiations with the Treasury over their working conditions.

Netanyahu expressed empathy with the residents, but took a harsh tone in calling on them to get back to the wards since more than 300 have walked out of their hospitals.

"I understand your desire to improve working conditions but no man in Israel is above the law. All of us are required to uphold the decisions of the courts. Otherwise, it's anarchy," Netanyahu said from the weekly cabinet meeting in Jerusalem.

The prime minister called on medical residents to "leave sick patients out of your struggle."
