27% of Israelis back full West Bank Annexation, according to a poll conducted by Haaretz.

Of those, 16% of respondents said they support annexation with no political rights for Palestinians, while 11% approve of annexation with political rights for Palestinians.

Another 15% supported annexation of Area C, which encompasses about 60% of the West Bank and does not include major Palestinian cities such as Ramallah, Nablus, or Hebron. (Almost all Palestinians (98%) live in Area A, which is about 20% of the West Bank.)


This means that 42% of Israelis support some form of annexation in the West Bank.

Only 28% of respondents opposed any annexation. 30% said that they weren't sure.
