The WikiLeaks website said on Thursday it had begun publishing more than 2.5 million e-mails from Syrian politicians, government ministries and companies dating back to 2006. This leak named "The Syria Files" which contain 2.5 million emails from 680 Syria-related entities and domain names “including those of the Ministries of Presidential Affairs, Foreign Affairs, Finance, Information, Transport and Culture.” According to WikiLeaks, the file dump will be “embarrassing to Syria, but it is also embarrassing to Syria’s opponents.” The Syria Files come mere days after Human Rights Watch revealed that the Syrian government was operating at least 27 torture chambers around the country and using 20 torture techniques against Syrian dissidents.
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange said “The material is embarrassing to Syria, but it is also embarrassing to Syria’s opponents. It helps us not merely to criticise one group or another, but to understand their interests, actions and thoughts. It is only through understanding this conflict that we can hope to resolve it.” WikiLeaks said the emails, which it has called "The Syria Files", would shine a light on the inner workings of the Syrian government and economy, and "also reveal how the West and Western companies say one thing and do another".
We would also like to give you reminder that earlier in this year we got Spy Files & GI Files (Global Intelligence Files & Five Million E-mails From Stratfor)
According to Wikileaks Release :-
"The database comprises 2,434,899 emails from the 680 domains. There are 678,752 different email addresses that have sent emails and 1,082,447 different recipients. There are a number of different languages in the set, including around 400,000 emails in Arabic and 68,000 emails in Russian. The data is more than eight times the size of ’Cablegate’ in terms of number of documents, and more than 100 times the size in terms of data. Around 42,000 emails were infected with viruses or trojans. To solve these complexities, WikiLeaks built a general-purpose, multi-language political data-mining system which can handle massive data sets like those represented by the Syria Files..."
