Hundreds of medical residents in Israel have resigned, leaving many Israeli hospitals shorthanded.
Doctors in Israel ended a strike on Thursday that had hamstrung the public health sector for nearly half a year, relieving some pressure from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who faces an unprecedented wave of cost of living protests nationwide.
It's bad enough that Israeli doctors are spending their lives in emergency rooms treating Jewish and Arab victims of suicide bombers. What really makes them heartsick these days, however, is that they also have to fend off mindless attacks from their scientific colleagues, particularly in Europe.
We arrived at Hadassah Hospital in Jerusalem, where some 2,000 victims have been treated during the current intifada, less than 24 hours after a particularly horrific bus bombing in Jerusalem. Hours earlier, teams of Jewish-Arab doctors had done what they've done for the past two years: jumped into action to save the lives of the critically injured.
