Even as evidence mounts of Boko Haram's ties to the Islamic State, the Nigerian rebel group has been driven from most of its recently-held territory. Yet as Nigeria's new president prepares to take office, Boko Haram may already be making a comeback.

This map report illustrates areas of known and possible Boko Haram control in Nigeria, and for the first time shows the full area of the Sambisa Forest, the rebels' last-resort hideout. The report includes a summary and timeline of events since our previous Boko Haram control map in March.

Since just last month, the Syrian government of Bashar al-Assad has lost important ground to both the rebel coalition (including Al Qaeda affiliate Jabhat al-Nusra) and the Islamic State. The war has also spread into new parts of Syria previously untouched by fighting, while Kurdish groups in the north are continuing to consolidate their gains.

See all this and more on the newest update to PolGeoNow's popular Syria control map, and read a timeline of changes since our previous Syria map report in mid-April.

A City for a City
Since PolGeoNow published our February map of control in Iraq, two major cities have changed hands, in opposite directions. Tikrit, known as the home region of former leader Saddam Hussein, was the Islamic State's farthest-forward prize in its spectacular takeover of northern Iraq last June. A priority for Iraq's struggling Baghdad government, Tikrit was finally taken back this March and April in a major push by Shiite militias, led by Iran and ultimately supported by U.S.-Arab coalition airstrikes.
