The Israel Defense Forces says troops have arrested 220 wanted Palestinians across the West Bank, including 130 affiliated with Hamas, since fighting began last weekend in southern Israel.

Last night alone 32 Hamas members were arrested by the IDF, among them senior members detained in Hebron, the military says.

There have been several clashes between IDF forces and Palestinians in the West Bank in recent days, and several attempted terror attacks.

According to the Palestinian Authority health ministry, at least 35 West Bank Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces since October 7.
