Two-thirds of Israelis oppose their country launching on its own a military attack against nuclear installations in Iran, said a poll published on Thursday.

Two-thirds of Israelis oppose attack on Iran
When asked "should Israel alone attack the Iranian nuclear installations," 67.2 percent said no, while 20.9 percent said yes and 11.9 percent had no opinion, said the survey aired on public radio.

The poll questioned people after the publication of a bombshell intelligence report in the United States earlier in the week, which said Tehran had frozen its atomic weapons programme in 2003.

Israel claimed Tehran has probably restarted an atomic weapons programme despite the new report.

Israel is the sole nuclear power in the Middle East.

Thursday's poll was carried out by Shivuk Panorama marketing group, questioning 562 people, and had a 4.5-percentage point margin of error.
