Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says Palestinian militants have been dealt ``unexpected blows'' in more than a week of Israeli bombardments in the Gaza Strip.

Netanyahu's office released a video of the prime minister speaking in front of an F-16 fighter jet at an air force base in southern Israel on Tuesday.

``I have no doubt that we set them back many years,'' Netanyahu said. ``I am sure that all our enemies around us see the price we have levied for the aggression against us, and I am sure they will learn the lesson.''
