Trust in the government is at a 20-year low, according to new polling by the Israel Democracy Institute.

Only 20.5% of Jewish Israelis and 7.5% of Arab Israelis polled say they have trust in Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government, when polled in the aftermath of Hamas’s brutal October 7 terror attack.

In June, these populations polled at 28% and 18%, respectively.

Earlier on Monday, Hebrew daily Yedioth Ahronoth reported that three unnamed members of Netanyahu’s cabinet are considering resigning, in response to the government and security establishment’s failure to prevent October 7 and handling of the assault’s aftermath.
