21% of southern residents consider relocating — poll

A Channel 10 poll late Wednesday showed that some 21 percent of southern residents, living in the areas between Ashdod in the north, the Gaza border towns in the south, and Netivot in the east, are considering moving in light of the recent operation and heightened security fears.

Meanwhile, 79% said they are not considering the option.

The poll noted that the timing of the survey, in the immediate aftermath of the violence, may have skewed the results. In the coming days and weeks, as the memory of the operation grows increasingly fainter, the numbers are likely to change, it said.
