This is a map of territorial control by faction in the Middle East. Please note that resolution (and thus accuracy) is limited by the program used, and as such this map is not intended to give a completely precise view of the frontlines but rather a province-by-province breakdown of control. Countries and factions are mapped according to the exact color of their flags (with the exception of Turkey).
Smaller insurgent groups mapped include the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), Hezbollah, Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), and Free Syrian Army (FSA).
Red = Axis of Resistance/Shia-led governments (Iran, Iraq, Syria, Hezbollah)
Green = Predominantly Sunni governments and factions
Yellow = PKK/SDF
Yellow-Orange = Kurdistan Regional Government (northern Iraq)
Dark Blue = State of Israel
Light Blue = Azerbaijan
Orange = Armenia/Republic of Artsakh
Below is the same map without any provincial borders marked.
This map is not an endorsement or condemnation of any country, state, group, faction, movement, or ideology. Provincial borders are not intended to endorse any territorial claim by any state, faction, or movement.
