Afrin CantonEdit

Jazira CantonEdit

  • 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 CantonEdit

Get inEdit

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

Stay safeEdit

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.
