US President Barack Obama's visit to the region confirmed his bias toward Israel, Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh told crowds in Gaza while delivering a speech on the eve of Land Day, Palestinian news agency Ma'an reported.

The Hamas premier reportedly warned his audience that Palestinians face ongoing political, economic, military and media campaigns to give up their land.

"We reject resettlement in Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, or the Sinai," Ma'an quoted Haniyeh as saying, emphasizing that Palestinians must reject the idea of settling in any land other than Palestine.

He added that Hamas is keen to reach a reconciliation agreement with the rival Fatah party.
