The Israel Defense Forces says troops have arrested 670 wanted Palestinians across the West Bank, including more than 450 affiliated with Hamas, since the war in the Gaza Strip began on October 7.

Overnight, 68 Hamas members were arrested, the military says.

Also overnight, the IDF says troops demolished the home of Hamas terrorist Maher Shalloun — in the Aqabat Jabr refugee camp — who is charged with killing dual American-Israeli citizen Elan Ganeles on the Route 90 highway in February.

There have been several clashes between IDF forces and Palestinians in the West Bank in the past two weeks, and several attempted terror attacks, according to the army.

According to the Palestinian Authority health ministry, at least 84 West Bank Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces and settlers since October 7.
