New Palestinian poll shows discontent with Hamas and its war in Gaza with Israel last summer

A new poll shows most Gaza residents are unhappy with the territory's Hamas rulers and by its war with Israel last summer.

The poll released Tuesday shows 50 percent of Gaza residents want to emigrate, compared to 25 percent in the West Bank.

A majority, 63 percent, expressed dissatisfaction with "achievements compared to human and material losses" in the 2014 war that killed over 2,200 Palestinians and 73 in Israel.

Only 30 percent of Gazans said they can criticize Hamas without fear. In the West Bank, 32 percent said they could freely criticize President Mahmoud Abbas.

Other findings pointed to high corruption and lack of press freedoms and personal safety.

The Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research polled 1,200 people early June with a 3-percent margin of error.
