Israel arrests dozens of Hamas targets in West Bank raids

Israeli Defense Forces say they made 60 arrests in the West Bank during raids on Thursday, with 46 of the arrestees being members of Hamas.

Israel's West Bank raid came around the same time it conducted its largest-yet incursion into the Gaza Strip early Thursday. Since the start of the war on Oct. 7, about 1,000 wanted individuals have been arrested, the IDF says.

The West Bank has been th esite of many widespread protests against Israel's war against Hamas.

Israel says the incursion is only a preamble for the "next stages of combat," an apparent hit at a larger scale invasion.

Israeli forces have been encamped around Gaza for more than a week, and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has vowed that Hamas will be "destroyed" by the end of the conflict.
