JERUSALEM (AP) -- Two of Israel's top defense officials say Hamas has been badly hurt by Israel's Gaza offensive but that the group will fight on.

Military intelligence chief Amos Yadlin told the Israeli Cabinet Sunday that the group's ability to fight has been damaged by the devastating assault Israel launched Dec. 27. He says Hamas is suffering from ammunition shortages and has been hard hit by the deaths of senior militants.

But Yadlin says the group "is not expected to raise a white flag."

Shin Bet security service chief Yuval Diskin told the Cabinet that many Gazans are furious with Hamas for "bringing a disaster on Gaza."

The officials' comments Sunday were relayed to the press by Israel's Cabinet secretary.
