Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh on Sunday denounced the Palestinian Authority's UN statehood bid as "political tampering."

"No mandate for any Palestinian leadership wants to tamper with the rights of the Palestinian people, especially the right of return," Haniyeh said during a session of the Legislative Council in Gaza City.

He slated the Palestinian Authority for not consulting with all the Palestinian parties and said that his government rejects any unilateral steps taken by the PLO.

"We support establishing any Palestinian state on any part of Palestinian land without giving up an inch of Palestine or recognizing Israel," he added.
