Half of Israelis are opposed to a hostage agreement with Hamas if the terms are as detailed in reports yesterday, according to a television poll.

In its question, Channel 12 news asked respondents if they would support or oppose a deal that includes the return of 35 hostages, a 45-day pause in the fighting and the freeing of thousands of Palestinian terrorists from prison. Fifty percent say they oppose such a deal, 35% back it and the remainder do not know.

The poll also asked respondents if they are in favor of reestablishing settlements in the Gaza Strip, after far-right coalition members attended a conference calling to do so this week. Just over half — 51% — say no, while 38% are in favor.

Other questions included whether Israel should halt the entry of humanitarian aid to Gaza until all hostages are returned (72% yes versus 21% no), and if and when a state commission of inquiry into the Hamas-led October 7 attack is needed (61% say at the end of the war, 32% now and 3% argue it’s not needed).
