92% of Gazans want ceasefire — poll

Channel 2’s Ehud Yaari quotes an IDC Herzliya poll on Gazan attitudes toward Operation Protective Edge, according to which 25 percent of respondents believe Hamas won the conflict, 8% say Israel is the victor, 14% say it was a draw, and 46% say both sides lost.

An overwhelming 92% of participants say they want a long-term ceasefire, with 72% supporting a peace agreement with Israel. Still, the desire for quiet may not detract from support for Hamas, with 67% saying the group is not to blame for the destruction in the Gaza Strip.

Some 68% say they would prefer the reconstruction of the Gaza Strip over the option of rearming.
