Sixty-nine percent of Israelis favor Israeli-US cooperation in a strike on Iran's nuclear facilities while 26% oppose it, a joint Israeli-Palestinian poll released  Wednesday found.

In the case of Israel acting unilaterally, however, the percentage of Israelis supportive of a strike on Iran drops to 42%. The majority of both Palestinians and Israelis believe that an Israeli strike would lead to a large-scale regional war, and 46% of Palestinians believe Israel will strike.

The poll was conducted by the Harry S.Truman Research Institute for the Advancement of Peace and the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research found.

The majority of both Israelis (64%) and Palestinians (68%) are skeptical that a Palestinian state will be established alongside Israel in the next five years. Almost half of the Israeli respondents answered that a two-state solution is doomed to fail, while 44% think it is still relevant. The solution of one state for two peoples did not fare any better, with almost two-thirds of both sides opposing the idea.
