Researchers at a Canadian firm announced Tuesday that they found evidence of an Iranian-backed global online disinformation campaign targeting U.S., Saudi and Israeli interests.

The University of Toronto–based Citizen Lab said in a report that it had uncovered a “network of inauthentic personas and social media accounts,” dubbed “Endless Mayfly,” operated out of Iran targeting the U.S. and other regional rivals of Tehran.
