Palestinian plans to ask the UN to unilaterally recognize a Palestinian state are a waste of time and are a "mirage," a senior Hamas member said Sunday, according to the Associated Press.

Khalil al-Hayya also said that resistance is the "most effective" way to combat Israelis, AP reported.

His remarks come amid rising tensions between Hamas and Fatah as the rival parties attempt to create a unity government.
