The Israeli military says it has carried out a wave of arrests in the West Bank following a deadly stabbing attack against three Israeli settlers in the occupied Palestinian territories.

The military says Sunday that forces arrested 29 people, including nine members of the Hamas militant group.

A 20-year-old Palestinian assailant infiltrated the illegal settlement of Halamish late Friday and stabbed four settlers, killing three, hours after Israel attacked Palestinian worshippers at Al-Aqsa Mosque, killing three and injuring more than 200.

Israel has arrested tens of Palestinians since Friday.

The number of Palestinians killed by Israel since Friday's clashes stands at six.
