Gaza: Hamas has said that all Israeli parties were on the same page over the rights of the Palestinians as the parliamentary elections are still too close to call.

Sami Abu Zuhri, a Hamas spokesperson on Tuesday night, made the remarks while commenting on the exit polls of the elections, Xinhua reported.

He said in an emailed press statement that Hamas movement does not differentiate between Israeli parties "because all of them agreed on denying the legitimate rights of our people."

As the polls were closed, the center-left Zionist Union and the rightwing Likud party tied in Tuesday's elections, two exit polls showed.

The Zionist Union and the Likud are predicted to win 27 seats respectively in the 120-member parliament, according to the exit polls conducted by Israeli Channel 1 and Channel 2.

Another exit poll conducted by Channel 10 gave the Likud one seat lead over the center-left Zionist Union.

Mushir al-Masri, a senior Islamic Hamas movement leader from Gaza, told reporters that "Hamas doesn't count so much on the results of the Israeli elections because we see no difference between right and left."

"Both race and compete on more of Judaizing Jerusalem, increasing settlement, keeping the military occupation, targeting our people and committing massacres against them," said al-Masri.
