Middle Euphrates River Valley, Syria

I. Why it Matters

With the campaign against ISIS in Syria seemingly drawing to a close, the Euphrates marks a rough dividing line between forces backed by Iran and the U.S. that compete over territorial control. To the river’s east are territories controlled by the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), while pro-regime, Iran-backed forces dominate the western banks. Mutual concerns over the other side’s presence and long-term intentions in the area could prompt clashes between their allied forces, which in turn could draw in Tehran and Washington.
