Jarabulus (Arabic: جرابلس / ALA-LC: Jarābulus; North Syrian Arabic: Jrāblos), is a Syriam city administratively belonging to Aleppo Governorate. Jarabulus, also known as Jerablus, has an altitude of 367 m asl and lies on the western bank of the river Euphrates. It has a population of 25,705. It is located North of the Assad lake, just South of the Syro-Turkish border.
The original AD 18th century form of the toponym seems to have been "Djerabis", later found however as "Djeraboolos" or "Djerablus", probably deriving from a Hierapolis (which is modern Manbij to the South-West). In the Bronze and Iron Ages the archaeological site lying just North of Jarabulus (half of which is now in Turkey) was called "Karkemish", in Greek and Roman times the ancient name of the city was "Europos" (Εὐρωπός), which must have been at the origin of the modern form of the toponym Jerabis.
On July 20, 2012, the Syrian opposition took it over along with its border post with Turkey.
