Time now for a look through the international headlines we're following this Thursday morning. For that, we turn to our Eunice Kim, standing by at the NewsCenter.
Eunice There's global outrage over the latest shelling of another UN school in Gaza said to be the biggest refugee camp in the region?

Right. That U-N school was sheltering some 33-hundred Palestinians. And after Wednesday's assault that struck before daybreak authorities say at least 17 people were killed and 90 others wounded.
It was the sixth UN school to be hit in this conflict the second with deadly consequences.
Devastated, the chief of the the UN's main relief agency in Gaza called on the world to "take deliberate international political action" to end the continuing carnage.
At least 16 Palestinians were also killed and more than 2-hundred wounded in an Israeli strike that hit a crowded shopping area in the Shi-jai-yah district of Gaza City.
Both attacks came during a four-hour truce called by the Israeli military which was rejected by Hamas as meaningless.
Wednesday's events now puts the Palestinian death toll above 13-hundred and Israel's at 58.
Most of the Palestinian deaths have been of civilians and many of those have been women and children.
