Iran ‘uses fake websites to stir division’

Iran is using fake websites and misinformation to meddle in British politics. The report by the Henry Jackson Society said Iran’s cyber operations had become increasingly sophisticated and rivalled those of Russia.

It said Iran had repeatedly been caught meddling in British elections and that its efforts were likely to be ongoing. Iranian operatives also sought to promote other objectives in the UK, including attacking Israel and Saudi Arabia.
