This map provides a general look at the current military situation in Syria. Over the past few days, there were several important developments in the war-torn country.

  • The Kurdish People’s Protectino Units (YPG) released a series of statements claiming that YPG cells had carried out a series of operations against Turkish-backed militant groups and the Turkish Armed Forces in the region of Afrin on October 16, 17 and 18. Summing up the claims, the YPG allegedly killed 4 Turkish-backed militants and a Turkish soldier and destroyed two vehicles.

    Is that a typo error or is there a new ISIS held area just to the north of Al Safa ?

    When that pocket controlled by ISIS around Deir Ezzor west finally will be seized for the SAA? It was a big mistake to leave ISIS control It. Various hundred losses in SAA happened since then.
