SNAP Estimated Areas of Control Map
1 Jan – 28 Feb 2015
This map is intended to provide humanitarian actors with a regularly-updated picture of which groups control territory in Syria, in order to facilitate an estimation of the obstacles that may be faced in program operations. Due to the limitations of available data, it is not comprehensive, and should be used to complement, not replace, information from the field.
This map illustrates the price and availability of a range of basic commodities in 11 sub-districts of Idleb governorate in Northern Syria. Primary data was collected by REACH from 19-23 February 2015, on behalf of the Cash-Based Response Technical Working Group, in order to understand the impact of the ongoing conflict on markets in Syria, and to inform the implementation of humanitarian cash programs within those markets.

This map illustrates security analysis at the Yarmouk and Falesteen Palestinian Refugee Camps, in Damascus, Syria. Imagery from 3 November 2014 showed 21 possible roadblocks and 2 possible checkpoints in strategic locations around the camps. As of 10 January 2015 the situation remains the same and 22 possible roadblocks and 2 possible checkpoints are detected in the imagery. All visible roadblocks and checkpoints remain operational, indicative that the area is under control and access is restricted in and out of the camp area.
