AL-QUDS (IQNA) - Israeli forces killed three Palestinians in an ambush after firing at a vehicle they were in near the occupied West Bank city of Jenin on Sunday, according to the military.

The apparent targeted killing took place on a road near Arraba town southwest of Jenin. 

After firing dozens of bullets at the car and killing the three men inside, Israeli forces prevented medics from reaching them and withheld their bodies and the vehicle, according to Palestinian media reports. 

The men's identities are still unknown and the Palestinian health ministry has yet to confirm their death.  

The Israeli military said that in a joint operation with the Shin Bet, Israel's internal intelligence agency, it killed three Palestinians who it claimed were part of "cell" that was on its way to attack Israelis.

The statement provided no further details on the nature of the alleged threat from the three men. 

Israeli forces make similar statements when carrying out targeted killings or assassinations, claiming they have posed a threat.
