(CNN Student News) -- August 21, 2014
With rockets and airstrikes being launched over the Middle East, CNN Student News begins its Thursday coverage with a look at events concerning Hamas and Israel. We also report on the killing of an American journalist by ISIS terrorists, and we update you on the battle for a strategic dam in northern Iraq. And in the U.S., new technology aims to help with an old challenge, but it comes at a cost.
