RAMALLAH, West Bank, Aug. 13 (UPI) -- While a majority of Palestinians support the resumption of peace talks with Israel, their number has decreased since April, a Palestinian poll indicates.

A poll conducted by Arab World for Research and Development, based in Ramallah, indicated 67 percent of Palestinians support renewed talks if Israel agrees to a settlement freeze, a 9 percent drop from April.

Details released by the Palestinian think tank indicated 51 percent of the 1,200 Palestinians from the West Bank and Gaza who participated in the poll published late July, support the immediate resumption of peace talks without any conditions.

Some 17 percent said the unrest in the Arab world in the wake of the Arab Spring has a positive effect on the Palestinian situation.

The poll was conducted on July 22-28 among Palestinian youth 18- to 30 years old and has a 3 percent margin of error.
