The Israel Defense Forces says troops detained 37 wanted Palestinians, including 10 Hamas members, during overnight raids across the West Bank.

During a raid in the West Bank town of Birzeit, the IDF says troops seized Hamas paraphernalia in a storage unit near the local university, which was used by the Hamas student faction for parades.

Since October 7, the IDF says troops have arrested some 1,430 wanted Palestinians across the West Bank, including more than 900 affiliated with Hamas.

According to the Palestinian Authority health ministry, more than 155 West Bank Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces, and in some cases settlers, since October 7.
