The Palestinian death toll from the ongoing Israeli attacks on the Gaza Strip has risen to 35,647, health authorities in the Palestinian enclave said in a press statement on Tuesday.

Over the past 24 hours, the Israeli army killed 85 Palestinians and wounded 200 others, bringing the total death toll to 35,647 and injuries to 79,852 since the latest round of Palestinian-Israeli conflict broke out on October 7, 2023.

The health authorities also said that many casualties remain buried under the rubble, making it difficult for medical emergency and civil defense personnel to carry out rescue operations.

The Israeli army said in a statement that drones and fighter aircraft bombed nearly 70 "terrorist targets" in the Gaza Strip over the past 24 hours, including military buildings, weapons depots, warehouses, rocket launchers, surveillance units, and other military infrastructure.

Israeli forces killed a number of militants in the Jabalia area of the northern Gaza Strip, including a "terrorist group" that was shooting at soldiers, read the statement.

It added that Israeli forces were continuing their operations in the southernmost Gazan city of Rafah, where a drone killed a "terrorist" who was firing mortar shells at Israeli soldiers.

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) announced on Tuesday that the Israeli military and Military Intelligence Directorate launched a joint military operation in the West Bank city of Jenin earlier Tuesday.

According to information from Israeli intelligence agencies, Palestinian armed personnel were active in the area. During the operation, the Israeli military engaged in firefights with the Palestinian armed personnel and destroyed a significant amount of infrastructure.

The Palestinian health ministry issued a statement on Tuesday, saying that on that day, the Israeli military killed seven Palestinians and injured 12 others in Jenin and the nearby refugee camp. Two of the injured are in serious condition.

China continues to optimize the energy consumption structure, and promote green and low-carbon development to a new height, said a senior official in Beijing on Thursday.

Since the 18th Communist Party of China (CPC) National Congress in 2012, China has made a new leap in the level of energy security and stable supply, while continuously optimizing the energy consumption structure, said Zhang Jianhua, director of the National Energy Administration.

From 2013 to 2023, the total production of primary energy rose 35 percent. The installed wind power generation capacity increased by nearly five times, and the installed photovoltaic power generation capacity increased by over 30 times, said Zhang.

The official also said that China has established the world's largest charging infrastructure system. Over the course of 10 years, the proportion of coal consumption has dropped by 12.1 percentage points, while the proportion of consumption in non-fossil fuel sources such as wind power, solar power, hydropower, and nuclear power has increased by 7.7 percentage points. As a result, the "green content" of economic development has significantly improved.

So far, China is one of the world's advanced countries in terms of energy technology modernization.

In the future, the country will coordinate energy security and low-carbon transformation, reduce the consumption of fossil fuel energy, and continuously promote the transformation and upgrading of energy utilization.

Meanwhile, China is intensifying its efforts in the development of non-fossil energy, while coordinating the advancement of nuclear power, hydropower, and new energy development and utilization, aiming to promote high-quality development of energy.

"By 2025, approximately 12 million charging facilities will be established nationwide. Efforts will be made to increase the electrification level of end-use energy to around 30 percent by 2025. We will continue to expand the scale of green electricity consumption and increase the proportion of non-fossil energy consumption by one percentage point every year," said Zhang.
