Only 12 percent of those who were surveyed did not support the operation, dubbed “Pillar of Defense.” Last week, a poll from Israel’s Channel 10 found that 91 percent supported Pillar of Defense with 75 percent backing a continued operation. However, a ground operation in Gaza strip is only supported by 30 percent of Israelis, according to today’s Haaretz poll.
