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.
