Since the end of June, the borders of the so-called "Islamic State" (IS) have changed significantly in Syria, with Kurdish advances from the north and IS pushes into the country's west. Meanwhile, rebels continue to struggle with the Assad government for dominance over the country's remaining territory.

See all this and more on the newest update to PolGeoNow's professional Syrian Civil War control map, which includes a timeline of changes since our previous Syria map report at the end of June.
