A worker assembly of x-ray technicians and others will be held at Hadassah University Medical Center in Jerusalem’s Ein Kerem on Sunday between 9 a.m. and 10 a.m. to protest against yet another violent incident against its staffers.

On Thursday morning, two x-ray technicians were attacked in the urgent medicine department by the son of a patient. The son accompanied his father to a computerized tomography (CT) scan and was physically violent against the technicians because he was apparently dissatisfied with waiting on the queue.

The medical staffers suffered light injuries and were treated in the emergency room. The police were called and arrested the attacker. The Hadassah Medical Organization said that at Sunday’s meeting, violence against staffers will be condemned.
