Israel ended Operation Pillar of Defense too soon, 49 percent of Israeli respondents said in a poll released by the Maagar Mohot research institute on Friday. Those respondents believed Israel should have continued the operation for as long as rockets were being fired into the Jewish state from Hamas-ruled Gaza.

Palestinian terrorists fired 20 rockets at Israel after the ceasefire took effect Wednesday night, Israel National News reported.

In the poll, 31 percent of Israelis supported Israel’s decision to halt the operation when it did; 20 percent had no opinion and 29 percent said Israel should have invaded Gaza with ground troops.
