Calls for probe into Hamas attacks

By Duncan Mil

March 13, 2024 - Five months after the outbreak of war in Gaza, an absolute majority of Israelis -- 92% -- want the establishment of a state commission of inquiry to investigate the failures of October 7.

According to the poll published by Channel 12 on Tuesday evening, 49% of people said they believe Israel should immediately establish a state commission of inquiry into the events surrounding the October 7 massacre, while 43% called for an investigation after the war ended.

Just 2% of Israelis believe no such commission is needed, and 6% said they were unsure.

64% of people believe that the country should hold early elections rather than wait until the end of the current government’s term in October 2026.

When asked who they would prefer to see as Israel’s next prime minister, 41% said they would prefer Benny Gantz, 29% would prefer Benjamin Netanyahu, 23% said neither was suitable for the position, and 7% didn’t know who they preferred.
