Al-Jarniyah (Arabic: الجرنية), also written Jurneyyeh, is a town in Raqqa Governorate, Syria. It is the administrative centre of Al-Jarniyah subdistrict in Al-Thawrah District.[3] The population of the town at the 2004 census was 2686.[2]

The town and much of the subdistrict are currently controlled by the Syrian Democratic Forces, following 2 years of ISIL control since 2014.[4]

The ISIL control of the town was ended in December 2016, when SDF forces cut off and cleared a large part of the Al-Jarniyah Subdistrict.[5][6]
