The Italians had attempted an invasion of Greece, but they had been repelled. The battle was won by the Greeks who captured the port of Sarandë (named by Fascist Italy Porto Edda). Immediately after the battle, Italian Chief of Staff, Pietro Badoglio, resigned from his post.
The Greeks occupied part of Northern Epirus (part of southern Albania), which was already a matter of territorial dispute between Albania and Greece.
