It appeared that medical residents and the Treasury may have drafted a final legal document ending months of protest Sunday night, according to Israel Radio.

On Tuesday morning, medical residents will distribute the draft document among medical residents in hospitals around the country to approve.

Among the agreements, medical residents will receive added salary during their residencies, and specialist doctors will be compensated for rotating afternoon shifts. The Finance Ministry also agreed to an additional wage increase for medical specialists.

Judge Yithak Zamir, who has presided over the hearings, oversaw as agreements were reached between the parties.
