This estimate is higher than unofficial estimates by the Bank of Israel and the Ministry of Finance, which estimated the impact to be a loss of 2-3% of the GDP, according to Al Mamlaka.

The direct cost of Israel's war on Gaza, including ammunition and mobilizing reserve soldiers, will be approximately 25 billion shekels (6.17 billion dollars), which is double the cost of the Second Lebanon War.

Compensating all affected individuals and companies could reach 17 billion shekels (4.2 billion dollars), in addition to the loss of tax revenue due to a decrease in the GDP by 31 billion shekels (7.6 billion dollars).
