A group of young doctors and medical interns voiced their displeasure with the newly signed agreement between the Israel Medical Association and the Finance Ministry on Sunday, saying they would follow through with plans to resign on September 4 despite the agreement which was supposed to have ended the five-month old doctors' labor dispute.

Over 1,000 residents and dozens of specialists signed and deposited letters of resignation three weeks ago, that would come into effect a week from now.

At a press conference on Sunday, the Council of Young Doctors said that the terms of the agreement to end the the doctors' dispute were not satisfactory and that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu should intervene in order to prevent the collapse of the health system.
