The poll, commissioned by the Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies and conducted over the phone from June 16-19, found that 85 percent of Israelis say their chances of going on vacation to Turkey in the near future are very low. Only 28 percent of Israelis believe that relations between Israel and Turkey under Erdogan will improve in the near future, while 42 percent think relations will stay the same and 30 percent believe they will deteriorate further.
