Back to Middle East

Syria is located in the Near East at the eastern end of the mediterranean Sea. Ancient Syria was ruled by successive conquerors. In 1920, the League of Nations declared Syria a French mandate. Syria became fully independent in 1944. For a more detailed country profile, see CIA World Factbook on Syria.
