Reports estimated the expected cost of this war at $56 billion, including the army budget and compensation, while construction sector losses amounted to $644 million per week, and the labor shortage in the construction fields reached more than 140,000 workers.

Reports indicate that Israelis' income has decreased by 20% since the beginning of the war, investments in the technology sector have declined to 15%, and last year's tax revenues are expected to shrink by 8.4%.

Analysts expected that the rate of contraction in the Israeli economy would reach 1.5% if the war continued until the end of the year, and that the budget deficit for the fiscal year 2023 would reach more than 18.5 billion dollars.
