A slim majority of Israelis do not believe that Iran will launch an unprovoked attack on Israel, a new poll shows.
Fifty-three percent of those polled said that they are not worried about a preemptive Iranian strike against Israel, as opposed to 45% of Israelis who said they are concerned.
The poll, conducted by the Dahaf Institute, further found that 47% of Israelis surveyed oppose a preemptive strike by Israel against Iranian nuclear facilities.
Only 35% said they support such a strike.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has characterized Iran’s nuclear program as an existential threat for Israel.
