Albania is famous for taking in refugees in times of crisis. From Jews during the Nazi reign, to Iranian resistance fighters in 2016 who were being slaughtered in Iraq, Tirana has opened its arms. Now the Balkan state is experiencing positive karma in the aftermath of the recent earthquake.
The Israel Defense Forces announced early Tuesday that it had dispatched an aid mission to earthquake-stricken Albania after a devastating temblor last month killed 51 people and destroyed thousands of buildings, reported The Times Of Israel.
“We just dispatched an IDF humanitarian aid delegation to Albania following the devastating earthquake that took 50+ lives and left thousands injured,” the army tweeted.
A feel good story is always good during troubled times.
