Gaza War Worsened Israel’s Strategic Situation: Poll

BEIRUT: A new poll conducted in Israel shows that more than half of Israelis think the eight-day Israeli war on the Gaza Strip has deteriorated the strategic situation of the Tel Aviv regime.

The poll conducted by the Dahaf Institute on November 21-25, surveyed 600 Israelis for their attitude toward the strategic situation of the Israeli regime after the war on Gaza. 

Asked whether Israel’s aggression on the besieged Palestinian territory put its strategic situation in a better situation, 59 percent of the respondents said the regime’s strategic situation was worsened after the war. 

Thirty-six percent said that Tel Aviv’s strategic situation had improved. 

Over 160 Palestinians, including women and children, were killed and about 1,200 others were injured in the Israeli attacks on Gaza during the eight-day period of November 14-21. An Egyptian-brokered ceasefire put an end to the Israeli violence.

In retaliation to the Israeli attacks, Palestinian resistance fighters fired rockets and missiles into Israeli cities, killing at least five Israelis. 

The recent Israeli war on Gaza is Tel Aviv’s second in four years. Israeli regime waged a 22-day war on the densely-populated Palestinian enclave in 2008. More than 1,400 Palestinians, including at least 300 children, were killed. 

Israel denies about 1.7 million people in Gaza their basic rights, such as freedom of movement, jobs that pay proper wages, and adequate healthcare and education.
