The Syrian Communist Party (Unified) (Arabic: الحزب الشيوعي السوري (الموحد)‏‎), initially known simply as Syrian Communist Party (الحزب الشيوعي السوري Al-Hizb Al-Shuyū'ī Al-Sūrī), is a communist party in Syria. The party emerged from a split in the Syrian Communist Party in 1986, formed by the pro-Perestroika faction led by Yusuf Faisal.

At the time of the 2000 Damascus Spring the party was able to publish a newspaper called an-Nour ('the Light').

The 11th party congress, held in March 2011, re-elected Hanin Nimir as First Secretary of the party.[1][2]
