    Security sources said the car belonged to members of the armed wing of the Islamic Jihad resistance group.

    Medics said the car was carrying three fighters on Monday, with the third member critically wounded. 

    One of the dead fighters was wearing a black shirt with the
    insignia of Islamic Jihad's military wing, medics added.

    The Israeli army said it was checking the reports. 

    Israel in the past has targeted members of Islamic Jihad.
