An Albanian intelligence source revealed: “In addition to the cyber attack in Albania, the intelligence unit of Quds secret operations outside Iran has also engaged in discrediting the members of the People’s Mojahedin by sending secret agents. To achieve this, this unit has tried to penetrate the Albanian media as well” (Top Channel-August 2, 2022).

According to the same source: “Quds agents have tried to use certain parts of the Albanian media for their own interests in order to achieve this goal. They first copied the Twitter address of a well-known Albanian-American businessman and activist, and then started communicating with journalists.” As Treadstone 71 stated prior to this action in the above linked report.
