This is according to a survey conducted by Israel Today and the New Guardian Organization, which was published on the occasion of the "Personal Security and National Security Conference in Israel" held this morning.

The comprehensive survey addresses pressing issues, and it also found that twice as many people support the establishment of a National Guard under the Border Police rather than under the Minister of National Security.

Unchanged: 37% compared to 53% in 2022. Only 8% say that the perception has strengthened, compared to 6% in 2022.
