Albania Earthquake Diplomacy

Last year, an IDF delegation to Albania provided invaluable aid after a 6.4-magnitude quake struck the capital city of Tirana.

The IDF dispatched a humanitarian aid delegation to the Muslim-majority country Albania following a devastating earthquake in which over 50 people died and thousands were injured last year.

Experts from the IDF’s Home Front Command assessed the damage and managed relief efforts, in addition to making critical judgments regarding which buildings could be entered and used.

Watch and listen to one of the IDF soldiers describe the experience and how the operation helped return around 1,600 Albanian families to their homes and save many lives!
