The Israel Defense Forces says troops detained 41 wanted Palestinians, including 14 Hamas members, during overnight raids across the West Bank.

The IDF also confirms troops demolished the Hebron homes of brothers Saqer and Mohammed a-Shanter, accused of killing Batsheva Nigri in a shooting attack in August.

Since October 7, the IDF says troops have arrested 1,540 wanted Palestinians across the West Bank, including more than 930 affiliated with Hamas.

According to the Palestinian Authority health ministry, at least 176 West Bank Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces, and in some cases by settlers, since October 7.
