Dozens of medical residents who failed to show up for their shifts at Ichilov and Sheba Hospitals Thursday morning eventually came in, Army Radio reported, in accordance with a the National Labor Court ruling.  Doctors at Sheba Hospital announced their decision to suspend their resignations until Monday, in accordance with the Prime Minister's request.

Their failure to report to work represented the first time that significant numbers of residents did not show up for work since a mass resignation in September.

Most of the over 700 residents who resigned as part of a labor dispute heeded Wednesday's court decision preventing their resignation until at least until Thursday afternoon, showing up to work on time. Negotiations between residents and the state were slated to continue, while the court was due to reconvene Thursday afternoon.
