Operation Alba

Operation Alba ("Sunrise") was a multinational peacekeeping force sent to Albania in 1997. Led by Italy, it was intended to help the Albanian government restore law and order in their troubled country after the 1997 rebellion in Albania.[1]

The Italian 3rd Army Corps assumed responsibility for the 'Alba' Mission, the first multinational Italian-led Mission ever. Eleven contributing European Nations [2] brought humanitarian aid to a country that was in a dramatic economic and political situation. [3]
