The Israel Defense Forces says troops have arrested 800 wanted Palestinians across the West Bank, including more than 500 affiliated with Hamas, since the war in the Gaza Strip began on October 7.

Overnight, 37 Hamas members were arrested, the military says.

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, at least 97 West Bank Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces and, in some cases, settlers since October 7.
