Colorblind accessible.The past month has seen continued territorial losses for the so-called "Islamic State" (IS; formerly, ISIS/ISIL), as government and rebel forces take vast swaths of desert and a Kurdish-led coalition closes in on the group's capital. Meanwhile, foreign countries have begun drawing up provisional ceasefire zones along hardened lines between rebel and government control.
