The Arab Center for Research and Policy Studies will announce the results of the public opinion poll regarding the Israeli war on Gaza on Wednesday 10 January 2024. The poll was carried out on a sample of 8000 respondents (men and women) from 16 Arab countries and is the first of its kind to measure the opinions of Arab citizens regarding the latest Israeli war on Gaza. The poll specifically measures the extent to which respondents are following the course of the war, their response to the military operation carried out by Hamas on 7 October 2023, and the main motivations for Israel to continue its war. The results also demonstrate Arab opinions about international and regional responses, particularly the US position, as well as some Arab government responses to the war. Furthermore, the results indicate what Arab citizens believe Arab governments should do in order to stop the war, in addition to their opinions on recognizing Israel and normalizing relations.
The field survey was carried out from 12 December-5 January in 16 Arab countries: Mauritania, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Sudan, Yemen, Oman, Qatar, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, and the West Bank, Palestine. The surveyed communities represent 95% of the population of the Arab region and represent its far-flung regions. The sample in each of the aforementioned communities was 500 men and women, drawn according to cluster and self-weighted sampling methods to ensure that every individual in each country had an equal probability of appearing in the sample.
