Map of Syrian Civil War (Syria control map): Territorial control in Syria in October 2019 (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 Turkish control, joint SDF-Assad control, US deconfliction zone, and Turkey-Russia demilitarized buffer zone, plus recent locations of conflict and territorial control changes, including Ras al-Ayn, Tel Abyad, Ayn Issa, and more. Colorblind accessible. Amid a US withdrawal, Turkey and its rebel allies have begun their long-threatened intervention against Kurdish-led fighters in northeastern Syria, who now have struck a deal with the Assad government to share their territory and jointly fight back against Turkey.

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 September, with sources cited.
