War on terror : The US has seized 27 #domains used by Iran’s operatives

The United States has seized 27 domain names that Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) unlawfully used to further a global covert influence campaign.

According to the US Department of Justice, all 27 domains were being used in violation of U.S. sanctions targeting both the Government of Iran and the IRGC.

Four of the domains purported to be genuine news outlets but were actually controlled by the IRGC and targeted audiences in the United States, to covertly influence United States policy and public opinion, in violation of the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA).

The seizure warrant, issued on Nov. 3, 2020, describes how the 27 seized domain names were being operated in violation of federal law; the seizure was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Note: there are actually 29 domains listed as seized in the FBI report:
