Medical residents sign resignation letters in escalation

Dozens of medical residents arrived at Sheeba Medical Center at Tel Hashomer in Tel Aviv to sign resignation letters in the latest step of their labor dispute against the Finance Ministry. The residents said they would tender their resignations if their demands are not met.
Meanwhile, top officials of the Israel Medical Association continued their march from Ramat Gan to Jerusalem, leaving Kfar Chabad Tuesday morning. Head of the doctors' union, who is leading the march, announced a one-man hunger strike on Tuesday as the work dispute continued to escalate.
Sanctions imposed by doctors and medical residents continued, with only emergency and oncological surgeries taking place.
