Syria, officially the Syrian Arab Republic, is a country in western Asia.

History

The Mandarin

"I was able to pinpoint the Mandarin's broadcast signal."
"What are we talking? Far East, Europe, North Africa, Iran, Pakistan, Syria?"
J.A.R.V.I.S. and Tony Stark[src]

Syria, along with the Far East, Europe, North Africa, Iran and Pakistan, was one of the places guessed by Tony Stark to be the probable location of the Mandarin's broadcast signal when J.A.R.V.I.S. factored in available A.I.M. downlink facilities, until being informed by J.A.R.V.I.S. that the actual location was Miami, Florida.[1]

Cybertek Shipments

"Trip I.D.'d a number of Cybertek shipments that ping-ponged across the globe. Brazil, Cambodia, Syria. But they all ended up in Havana."
Phil Coulson[src]

Cybertek sent many of its shipments related to the Centipede Project and the creation of the Deathlok Soldiers to many countries around the globe, including Syria, in order to hamper their tracking while they were re-routed to the Barbershop Headquarters in Cuba.

Antoine Triplett managed to identify many of them, learning that their destination point was in Havana, letting Phil Coulson and his team guess where John Garrett established his base once he revealed himself as a HYDRA operative.[2]

Special Operations

"We altered protocol after what happened in Damascus."
Miklos Kozlov to Will Simpson[src]

A Special Ops unit, including Will Simpson, was tasked with finishing a mission in the Syrian capital of Damascus. During the mission Simpson consumed specialized amphetamines created by IGH to greatly increase his endurance and pain tolerance. To combat the effects of these drugs, Simpson was also given supplementary drugs; a stabilizer to prevent his body from shutting down, and a depressant to return his body chemistry to normal levels. Misuse of the pills led to a catastrophe during the mission.[3]

Civil War

Sinclair in Syria

Griffin Sinclair reports from Aleppo

"I'm reporting from the Aleppo Citadel war zone, where Syrian forces have launched a full-scale offensive after three days of heavy artillery and air strikes. Militant targets were in the besieged areas, with previous gains in the Sheikh Sa'eed neighborhood. Rebel forces on the ground have held the line around their stronghold. Though it may only be a waiting game at this point."
