According to the Associated Press, the poll, published in Haaretz newspaper on Thursday, Aug 28,, shows that 54 percent of those surveyed believe there was no clear winner the 50 days of war. The fighting killed more than 2,100 Palestinians and 69 Israelis.

The poll questioned 464 Israelis on Wednesday and had a margin of error of 4.6 percent. Later that night, Netanyahu said in a televised speech that Israel dealt Hamas "a heavy blow."

Calm has prevailed since the two sides agreed this week to an open-ended truce, settling for an ambiguous interim agreement in exchange.
