Afrin Canton[edit]

Jazira Canton[edit]

  • 4 Al-Qamishli — the de facto capital.
  • 5 Deir-ez-zor — Capital of Deir Ezzor Governorate (split control between Assad regime and SDF)
  • Mayadin — ISIS's former headquarters in Eastern Syria.
  • Al-Hasakah

Euphrates Canton[edit]

Get in[edit]

The Turkish border is closed. Al-Qamishli has an airport (at least in theory).

Stay safe[edit]

Al-Qamishli may be much safer than other parts of war-torn Syria, but travel there (and the rest of Rojava) is still highly inadvisable.

This region travel guide to Rojava is an outline and may need more content. It has a template, but there is not enough information present. If there are Cities and Other destinations listed, they may not all be at usable status or there may not be a valid regional structure and a "Get in" section describing all of the typical ways to get here.
