Hackers from Syrian Electronic Army known for their hardcore support for Syrian President Bashar Ul Assad have claimed to have breached the Saudi Arabian Ministry of Defense Email system and as a result number of secret emails correspondence have been leaked online.

For now the hackers have released an image taken from the email correspondence between a Saudi and British defense officials, discussing an arm deal.
