Health Ministry deputy director: Violence against healthcare workers is rising – The Times of Israel

Deputy director of the Health Ministry Sefi Mendelovich says violence against healthcare professionals in Israel is rising in an alarming fashion.
Mendelovich tells Army Radio that over the past 14 years, since he was a young doctor, he has experienced such violence “a lot of the time.” Overall, he says, he has seen a “significant rise in violence toward healthcare staff — both physical and verbal. And it cannot continue this way.”
Also today, police say that three suspects in a violent attack in Hadassah Hospital in Mount Scopus in Jerusalem last week were remanded into custody pending charges.
