The Israel Defense Forces says troops detained 58 members of the Hamas terror group in overnight arrest raids across the West Bank.

The IDF says that since the war in the Gaza Strip began on October 7, troops have arrested more than 930 wanted Palestinians in the West Bank, including some 608 affiliated with Hamas.

The military also releases footage showing an airstrike against a group of Palestinian gunmen in the Jenin refugee camp who had been hurling explosives and shooting at Israeli forces overnight.

There have been numerous 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, around 100 West Bank Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces, and in some cases settlers, since October 7.
