The National Nurses Union has announced an indefinite strike by nurses across the country starting from Monday, July 22, after failure to reach an agreement with the Health Ministry over demands for improved salaries and better working conditions. The strike is reportedly affecting nursing services at hospitals and health clinics across the country. While emergency treatments are still available, other health services are limited.
Significant disruptions to health services are expected at all health facilities nationwide. Associated protests are also possible in the coming days and weeks.
Individuals in Israel are advised to confirm medical appointments, anticipate severely reduced services and long wait times at hospitals, and avoid any potential related demonstrations as a precaution.
