The ruling Fatah faction headed by Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has improved its standing among Palestinians, apparently as a result of confidence-building measures with Israel, according to a public opinion poll published on Wednesday. The poll, conducted by the Ramallah-based Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research, attributed the rise in Fatah’s popularity to a series of measures taken by Israel in the past few weeks, including the approval of family reunifications and the rise in the number of Palestinians allowed to work in Israel.

A poll published by the center last month showed that a majority of the Palestinians supported the confidence-building measures with Israel. Wednesday’s poll, conducted between October 14 and 23, covered 1,800 Palestinians and has a 3% margin of error. The findings of the poll show that overall support for Fatah has increased and is now higher than that of Hamas.
