Map of factional control in Iraq (and nearby parts of Syria)

Map of factional control in Iraq and parts of Syria:

Notice please that by labeling certain countries as supporting the terrorists or the legitimate governments I am just stating the obvious in terms geopolitic.

One question may arise here: who supports the Kurds? Nobody but themselves in general terms. It is true that they are currently in unstable symbiosis with the central authorities of Syria and Iraq but otherwise they are on their own. Also they are the most respectable of all factions without doubt.

    1. Recent or ongoing battles between the ISIS and other forces.
