A senior Palestinian Authority official slammed both Hamas and Iran for interfering in the Palestinan national project at an Eid Al-Fitr prayer at the government headquarters in Ramallah, Palestinian news agency Ma'an reported on Saturday.

Mahmoud Al-Habbash said Friday that Hamas leaders are "preachers of sedition" that should "stop their deeds" and take responsibility for the "coup in Gaza three years ago."Habbash also addressed comments made by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad last week in which he called on PA President Mahmoud Abbas to cease peace negotiations with Israel.

He said that Iran was "against the Palestinian national project," adding that "we refuse the right of any other to intervene in the internal issues of Palestine."
