    Documents published by WikiLeaks, sourced from the Saudi government, have revealed the country's Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) as a victim of the series of attacks in 2014 collectively called Operation Cleaver.

    Until the documents were published last week, the MOFA was an unknown victim of the attacks that were blamed on actors in Iran.

    WikiLeaks published the Saudi documents last week, releasing 61,214 communications from various Saudi Embassies around the world. WikiLeaks says they have more than half-a-million cables and other documents set for release.

    Most of the cables, emails, and documents are sourced from Saudi State institutions, including the Ministry of Interior, MOFA, and the Kingdom's General Intelligence Services. One email however, dated 15 February 2015, is a security incident / after action report outlining the measures taken after it was determined the agency was a victim of Operation Cleaver.
