Lebanese army fires at Israeli drones

The Chinese People’s Liberation Army deployed new troops to Hong Kong on Thursday in what's being called a "routine rotation" of forces. The move comes amid speculation that Beijing will soon intervene in the protests while CNN retracts a story on the subject. RT America's Michele Greenstein reports from Hong Kong. The Lebanese Army fired M16s into the air overnight, aiming at multiple Israeli drones that allegedly flew into Lebanon’s airspace. This comes on the heels of two other drone attacks by Israel. Lebanon has filed complaints to the United Nations. Former Pentagon official Michael Maloof and former US diplomat Jim Jatras discuss. Plus, US President Trump has announced he will lift logging restrictions in the Tongass National Forest in Alaska, the largest national forest in the United States. Meanwhile, the International Criminal Court at The Hague is considering whether Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro could be charged with human rights violations and crimes against humanity for promoting destructive environmental policies. Bron Taylor, professor of environmental studies at the University of Florida, weighs in.
