A back-to-work order by the Health Ministry ended the strike Wednesday of some 800## employes of the Magen David Adom, Israel’s counterpart of the Red Cross. They had walked off the job in a wage dispute with the result that ambulance service was suspended, including mobile intensive care units for heart attack victims, and blood banks at MDA centers were closed.
