Most Israelis Support Unilateral Disengagement in West Bank

Head of the Israeli Zionist Camp Yitzhak Herzog proposed a unilateral disengagement plan from the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem, Anadolu reported on Friday.

The proposal was made two weeks ago in the National Security Research Institute in Tel Aviv University.

Based on vote results published by the Israeli newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth, Anadolu said the plan had received much support from Israelis.

The Israeli newspaper said that 65 per cent of the Israelis that took part in the vote voiced their support. However, 35 per cent rejected the proposal.

According to the vote, 75 per cent agreed that efforts should be made to hold a regional security conference which would include “moderate” Arab countries. This was rejected by 25 per cent of those asked.

In addition, 68 per cent of the voters agreed on facilitating the life of Palestinians under Palestinian Authority control and to strengthen security cooperation in efforts to move towards a truce.
