Only 35% call good relations with Ankara even "somewhat important," while just 9% rank relations with Iran as even somewhat important. 96% voice a negative opinion of Hizbullah, and an equal amount express a negative view of Iran's ally in Yemen, the Houthis. 73% voice a negative opinion of Hamas. Only 23% now view the Muslim Brotherhood positively. However, only 1/4 support the recent peace agreements with Israel by the UAE and Bahrain, while 2/3 reject the agreements.
