Map of Syrian Civil War (Syria control map): Territorial control in Syria in March 2019, when IS control has been reduced to only some areas of desert after the group lost its last town (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 and Turkey-Russia demilitarized buffer zone, plus recent locations of conflict and territorial control changes, such as Baghuz, Murashidah, the Doubayat gas field, and more. Colorblind accessible. The so-called "Islamic State" (ISIS/ISIL) has lost its last populated territory in Syria, but it still operates freely in some remote desert areas. Meanwhile, the situation remains tense along the Russia-Turkey-brokered "buffer zone" between rebel and government territory in the northwest.

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 January, with sources cited.

Syria: Where Things Stand Now

In the month and a half since our previous Syria control map report, the main territorial changes have been losses by the so-called "Islamic State" (IS; formerly ISIS/ISIL). The Assad government has eliminated the last pocket of IS control in western Syria, in the south's Al Safa area, and the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have recaptured the town of Hajin in the east, while also driving IS once again off of the Syria-Iraq border.

Meanwhile, the government has surrendered an enclave of control within rebel-held northwestern Syria, and the so-called "Islamic State" (ISIS/ISIL) is struggling to hold onto pockets of territory both east and west.

Timeline by Djordje Djukic

Situation Summary

The past few weeks since our previous Syria map update have been dominated by news from two main arenas of battle, both in the country's northwest. In the most politically significant development, the Turkish military has entered the Kurdish-administrated Afrin region (also spelled "Efrin") as part of a mission, alongside allied rebel fighters, to drive Kurdish militias out of the western border region. Meanwhile, forces loyal to Syria's Assad government have made major advances in areas south of Aleppo, eliminating an enclave of the so-called "Islamic State" (IS; formerly ISIS/ISIL) and cutting into rebel control around the edges of Idlib province.
