The Palestinian Authority says three people were killed in Israel Defense Forces raids on the West Bank.

The IDF does not comment on the reported deaths but said that troops detained 49 wanted Palestinians, including 21 affiliated with 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 some 1,220 wanted Palestinians in the West Bank, including more than 740 affiliated with Hamas.

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

In the latest terror attack, a man was killed when shots were fired at his vehicle near Bayt Lid.

The PA says two people were killed in El-Bireh, near Ramallah. Ayham al-Shafei, 14 and Yazan Shiha, 24, were killed and two others wounded when Israeli troops opened fire during a raid, the ministry says.

A 19-year-old Palestinian, Qusai Quran, was killed by Israeli forces during a raid on Qalqilya in the northern West Bank, according to the ministry, reporting two others were wounded.

According to the Palestinian Authority health ministry, at least 137 West Bank Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces, and in some cases settlers, since October 7.
