Reports about the Palestinian group Hamas accepting a Palestinian state are "fake news," according to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in a video posted Sunday.

Netanyahu slammed CNN and other news sources as "fake news" for those reports.

"Ever wonder what fake news is? Last week, headlines in CNN, Al Jazeera, and the Guardian said Hamas now accepts a Palestinian state along the 1967 lines. The New York Times headline called this 'moderation.' The intimation is that Hamas now accepts the State of Israel," Netanyahu said in the video.

"Great news, right? Well, except for one small detail. This is a complete distortion of the truth. The new Hamas document says that Israel has no right to exist. It says every inch of our land belongs to the Palestinians. It says there is no acceptable solution other than to remove Israel," the prime minister said.

Ntanyahu said that the Hamas document showed that the Palestinian group remains unwilling to make peace with Israel.

"Is moving from calling for genocide of all Jews to calling just for the annihilation of Israel, is that progress or moderation? Only if you have no standards whatsoever," Netanyahu said.

"It's bad enough Hamas lies to the world, we don't also have to lie to ourselves. Hamas murders women and children. It's launched tens of thousands of missile attacks at our homes. It brainwashes Palestinian kids in suicide kindergarten camps," Netanyahu said.

Then, to conclude the video, Netanyahu crumpled the Hamas document and threw it in a trashcan.

The CNN report Netanyahu referenced said, "Hamas says it accepts '67 borders, but doesn't recognize Israel."

A number of Western countries classify Hamas as a terrorist organization because it has not recognized Israel's right to exist or accepted peace agreements between Israel and the Palestinians. The group has fought three wars with Israel since 2007, according to Reuters.
