Thursday, 15 September 2022 | Days after Albania broke diplomatic ties with Iran over its alleged involvement in cyberattacks, Israel offered Albania aid in cyber defense.

On the sidelines of the Feminist Foreign Policy Development Conference in Berlin, Deputy Foreign Minister Idan Roll met with Albanian Foreign Minister Olta Xhacka and offered “to share our knowledge and experience in cyber defense.” He also “expressed Israel’s appreciation” for Tirana’s decision to expel the Iranian diplomats, he said in a tweet on Monday.

“We will continue to tighten cooperation between Israel and Albania,” said Roll.

The US Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) announced on Friday that it had imposed sanctions against Tehran’s Ministry of Intelligence and Security and Minister of Intelligence Esmail Khatib following an Iranian cyberattack on Albania.

The attack in July disrupted state computer systems in Albania, forcing it to suspend online services and leaking supposed government documents and residents’ personal information.
