Israel said Hamas was trying to delude the world by issuing a new policy document on Monday that purportedly softens the Palestinian Islamist terrorist group’s policy towards Israel.

“Hamas is attempting to fool the world but it will not succeed,” said David Keyes, a spokesman for Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.

“They build terror tunnels and have launched thousands upon thousands of missiles at Israeli civilians,” he said. “This is the real Hamas.”
