Parliament's Foreign Affairs Committee rejected Israeli claims that Hezbollah had precision missile sites near Beirut's international airport Tuesday, as it and other committees met to study a raft of draft laws.The Administration and Justice Committee, chaired by Chouf MP George Adwan, discussed a new media law that would bring together the various laws that now separately govern the sector, including the Publications Law and the current Media Law.While the committee was previously set to study a separate amendment to the Publications Law that would have added modern language, committee member and Chouf MP Bilal Abdullah told The Daily Star lawmakers were now leaning toward drafting one new law that incorporates all legislation related to media.The committee also studied a draft law put forward by Baabda MP Hikmat Dib that would set new building regulations for decorative roof tiling, which used to be common across Lebanon but is now found mostly in mountain villages.A subcommittee of Parliament's joint committees headed by Metn MP Ibrahim Kanaan held discussions on a draft law for a sovereign wealth fund for potential proceeds from the oil and gas sector in Lebanon.
