Another public opinion poll published Wednesday showed that Hamas was continuing to lose its popularity among Palestinians.
The poll, conducted by the Jerusalem Media and Communications Center, also indicated a drop in the number of Palestinians who support the Oslo Accords and violence. Last week, a poll published by the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey in Ramallah also showed a decline in Palestinians' support for Hamas.
Wednesday's poll, which covered 1,179 people over the age of 18 and has a margin error of three percent, found that more than 80% of Palestinians support non-violent means of "resistance" against Israel.
About 60% said that military operations harm the Palestinians' national interests.a
