Map of Syrian Civil War (Syria control map): Fighting and territorial control in Syria in August 2018 (Free Syrian Army rebels, Kurdish YPG, Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS / Al-Nusra Front), Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL), and others). Includes US deconfliction zone, plus recent locations of conflict and territorial control changes, such as Quneitra, Tasil, Al Safa, Al Kara'a, and more. Colorblind accessible. Since late July, Syria's Assad government and allies have completely eliminated both rebel and so-called "Islamic State" (IS; formerly ISIS/ISIL) control of the southwestern border area next to Israel and Jordan. IS has also lost territory elsewhere in the southwest and in Syria's far eastern desert regions.

See all this and more on the latest update to PolGeoNow's concise, professional Syrian Civil War control map, which includes a timeline of changes since our previous Syria map report in July, with sources cited.
