Meir Hospital medical residents start hunger strike

As part of the ongoing doctors' work dispute, medical residents at Meir Hospital in Kfar Saba opened up in a hunger strike on Thursday.
At Beilinson Hospital in Petah Tikva,  Sheba Hospital at Tel Hashomer and Shalvata Hospital in Hod Hasharon residents massed into emergency rooms, complaining of exhaustion and asking to be checked.
The new forms of protest came after the National Labor Court decided late Wednesday night to issue an injunction against rebelling medical residents clamoring to strike on their own – without permission from the Israel Medical Association.
Israel Radio reported that legal authorities were present at hospitals on Thursday, ensuring that the residents protest activities do not violate the terms of the injunction.
