WikiLeaks Published 2 Million Syrian Government Records

The news is late served but it’s never too late.  On Thursday, Wikileaks announced the publication of two million emails of Syrian government officials, called “The Syria Files”. Wikileaks also stated on their site that with the release of the files, it will bring “shame” not just to the Government but to the Western nations too who are dealing with the oppressive regime of Assad.

In the two million emails that have started to jump, we can find mails of Syrian political figures, Ministries, Bureaucrats and partners. According to WikiLeaks, the data is collected from about 680 Syrian related entities which include the Ministry of Presidential Affairs, Ministry of Transport, Culture, Finance etc.

Wikileaks Syria Files, Mails and Documents

As happened in the past, this is a publication that began a few days ago and will continue in the coming months with the help of various media that work with WikiLeaks.

Wikileaks also added that the Syrian government is not the only one who will face public criticism.

The material is embarrassing for Syria, but also for the opponents of Syria. It helps us not only to criticize each other, but to understand their interests, actions and thoughts. Only through understanding this conflict we hope to resolve it.

Within the exposed files, we can find how things works inside the Syrian government and its economy. It also exposes the truth of what Western firms do, what they say and what they actually do.

A material which in the opinion of the Wikileaks is important to know the brutal repression experienced by the country led by President Bashar Hafez al-Assad, in ” an area on the brink of civil war ”

It is estimated that between 6,000 and 15,000 people have died in violent clashes in the country over the past 18 months.

The database released by WikiLeaks has 2,434,899 email messages with 678,752 different email addresses. In addition, many of the emails are in languages like Russian and Arabic.

WikiLeaks ends by explaining that in comparison with the famous “Cablegate”, Syria Files are about eight times the size in terms of documentation and up to 100 times larger in terms of data size.
