GAZA, Apr 18 (Reuters) A senior minister in the Hamas-led government today said Palestinians had the right to defend themselves any way possible against Israel.

The comments from Interior Minister Saeed Seyam were the first from a cabinet member in response to a Palestinian suicide bombing in Tel Aviv on Monday that killed nine people.

''We are not a great power who can confront the planes and the missiles of the occupation, but our people have the will and the right to defend themselves and to confront as much as they can the arrogances of the occupation,'' Seyam told reporters.
