"O you who believe, do not betray Allah and the messenger and do not knowingly betray your mutual trusts." (Surah Al-Anfal: 27)

Durrul Manthur (Vol. 3 Pg. 178) reports from Sayyidina Jabir رضی اللہ عنہ that when Abu Sufyan left Makkah, Jibr'il علیہ السلام informed Rasoolullah صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم of his exact whereabouts and asked that the imminent attack be kept secret. However, some hypocrites (Munafiqeen) informed him by letter that Rasoolullah صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم was planning to attack his caravan. It was on this occasion that Allah revealed the above verse.
