The GNA Burkan Al Ghadab operation claimed that “Hungarian photojournalist Szabó Gergely of RTL TV was injured in the bombing of the UAE air force supporting the rebel war criminal Haftar in the Salaheddin axis and was taken for medical treatment.”
Oded Berkowitz tweeted: “Pro-LNA sources claim that Szabó Gergely Hoang Viet, a journalist from Hungary, was kidnapped from his hotel in Tripoli, while GNA sources claim he was wounded in a UAE airstrike and evacuated for medical treatment.”
