London: In continuing leaks of official communication from Syria, whistleblower website Wikileaks has released thousands of emails related to the troubled country`s ministries of Foreign Affairs and Presidential Affairs.
The website began publishing what it called `Syria Files` from July 5. The latest releases were published on September 10 and 11.
It said in a statement: "This extraordinary data set derives from 680 Syria-related entities or domain names, including those of the Ministries of Presidential Affairs, Foreign Affairs, Finance, Information, Transport and Culture.
At this time Syria is undergoing a violent internal conflict that has killed between 6,000 and 15,000 people in the last 18 months."
WikiLeaks added: "The Syria Files shine a light on the inner workings of the Syrian government and economy, but they also reveal how the West and Western companies say one thing and do another."
