Israel said Hamas was trying to delude the world by issuing a new policy document on Monday that purportedly softens the Palestinian 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 Benjamin Netanyahu.

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