Israelis march on a main road in Tel Aviv during a rally against rising property prices in Israel.

A new survey has shown that the majority of Israelis are dissatisfied with the social and economic policies of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

The poll, carried out by the War and Peace Index late June, indicated that more than 62 percent of Israelis believe that Netanyahu has a "bad" or "very bad" performance in social and economic issues, Ha’aretz reported on Sunday.

According to the survey, 80 percent of the respondents also said that they were "very disturbed" or "quite disturbed" by Israel’s socioeconomic situation.

Seventy one percent also said that they were "disturbed" or "very disturbed" when it comes to Israel’s international political situation.

The recent poll results come as a wave of protests and strikes has hit Israel since two weeks ago when statistics centers announced a 32-percent hike in Israel’s housing prices during a one-year period.

Tel Aviv is facing shortage of funds in its social and labor sectors as the cabinet of Netanyahu allocated huge military budgets to intensify the regime’ s deadly attacks on Palestinians.
