Map of Syria

Syria is an Arabic country located in the Middle East. Its full name is the Syrian Arab Republic. It is bordered by Lebanon to the west as well as the Mediterranean Sea; Turkey to the north; Iraq to the east; Jordan to its south; and Israel to the southwest. One portion of Syria called the Golan Heights is occupied by Israel after being taken in the 6 Day War of 1967. Israel since annexed the Golan Heights, but negotiations to return them in exchange for peace have taken place intermittently.

The population of Syria is 22,717,417. 75% of those people are Sunni Muslim, 13% are Shia Muslim, 9% are Christian, and 3% are Druze. About 90% of the population is ethnically Arab, with significant minorities of Assyrians, Armenians, Turkmen, and Circassians.

The total land area of the country is 185,180 square km, or 71,479 square miles.

The current president is Bashar al-Assad, yet there is currently an uprising aimed at toppling his rule. His repression of this uprising has received worldwide condemnation.
