BEIRUT, Lebanon (CNN) -- Israel Defense Forces killed two Islamic Jihad militants in the West Bank on Saturday, one of whom was the head of the group's military wing, according to Palestinian sources.

The IDF did not confirm the report, but said that a gunman was killed in a gunfight near Nablus.

The deaths come the day after the IDF reported that it had arrested 22 "wanted Palestinians" in the West Bank on Thursday.

In a separate incident, an Israeli missile hit a house between Gaza City and Jabaliya early Sunday, injuring two people. The house was destroyed and nearby residences were damaged, Palestinian sources said.

The house belonged to a family with a son in Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, a militant group linked to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah Party. The IDF did not confirm the report but said it had struck a building used by Hamas in Gaza City.
