Two Palestinians were killed Thursday when their car exploded in a Gaza City neighborhood, witnesses and medical officials said.

The witnesses said the car, a white Subaru, was traveling in the Zeitoun neighborhood, and Israeli helicopters were flying overhead at the time.

The Israeli military said it was not aware of the incident.

Israel frequently targets Palestinian militants with missiles fired from helicopter gunships.
