CAIRO – 15 December 2017: A Qatari opposition website named “The Qatari Leaks” revealed on its Twitter account that Qatar is recruiting paid social media trolls to distort and divide opinion in Arab countries.

Qatari Leaks published a video on its twitter account showing that Doha spent $90 million dollars to launch a cyber army aiming to boycott countries that are targeting Qatar, and spreading rumors; there are more than 50,000 fake accounts on social media run by Azmi Bishara.

Qatar has been hit by its biggest diplomatic crisis in years after multiple Arab nations, including Bahrain, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the UAE, cut ties with the country, accusing it of destabilizing the region with its support of Islamist groups.
