Around 80 percent of both Israelis and Palestinians say that an Israeli strike against Iran’s nuclear facilities would ignite a major regional war, a joint Israeli-Palestinian survey indicated on Thursday.

It used a sample of 1270 Palestinian adults in the West Bank, East Jerusalem, and the Gaza Strip, along with a sample of 600 Israelis.

According to the study’s finding, 77 percent of Israeli respondents and 82 percent of Palestinian resopndents said that an Israeli attack on Iran would result in a major regional confrontation.

Regarding the possibility of an Israeli strike without U.S. backing, 65 percent of Israelis were against such a course of action, an increase from 52 percent in June. In addition, only 18 percent of Israelis said they supported an Israeli attack on Iran without U.S. backing.
