The head of the General Syndicate of Libyan Doctors, Mohamed Al-Ghouj, warned on Saturday to step up their protest if the government continues to "sidestep their demands," which include a salary increase.

Doctors will submit a collective resignation or engage in civil disobedience "if their demands are not met," Al-Ghouj told the press.

He held the Ministry of Health accountable for its "procrastination in settling the legitimate demands" of the doctors, including improving wages by reviewing the occupational classification.

It is noteworthy that the Doctors Syndicate has gone on strike more than once over the past two years in protest against what it described as the "deteriorating financial conditions" of doctors.
