There is a motorway from Jordan to Damascus. Then from Damascus to Allepo. (Although not all sections meet the motorway standards) Also there is Allepo-Lattikia and Homs-Tartus-Latikia.
The M4 Aleppo-Qamishlu-Iraq is not a motorway but its curves and its way of bypassing towns and villages show that it was designed in a way to be upgraded to a motorway. But right now because of security issues (we all know what they are) there is no development anywhere.

I think both are too much. I would say somewhere between 750 and 800 Km.

The 877 kilometer figure includes all motorways that are substandard. Design standards vary in Syria and maintenance is poor and few motorways have been upgraded since construction. The higher figure includes 4-lane dual carriageways which are certainly not motorways. Usually CIA World Factbook includes these types of roads as "expressways".

I wonder how highways shown in the first pages (poorly maintained but quiet with normal everyday traffic, pics taken in 2009) do look like now.
I guess empty, with only military patrol vehicles, if bombs haven't already destroyed some brigdes, overpasses or just stretches of asphalt.

A week ago there were news that Syrian army have secured Damascus-Homs motorway from rebels. I'm pretty sure that there is some commercial traffic and even public transport still running between these cities on Damascus-Aleppo motorway. Not everyday and maybe not even every month but when it's possible and you are on the right side of front line you still have to make business and so on.
The motorway from Damascus to Lebanon is probably very busy with trucks and cars as most of the commercial traffic to Damascus is currently running through port of Beirut.

Nice sign with (almost) all neighbouring countries on it. I also wonder how it must be nowadays to travel through the country.

It is very strange how names are translated or transliterated. The Latin script version of the name of the town(?) "Al Mukhtarieh" is in dialect, while in standard Arabic it should be "Al Mukhtariya"

Well every country has its own standard, based on local dialect, why call a city what someone somewhere in Saudi Arabia calls it when your local population wouldn't understand that?

Well, that's not quite right. It is only the way you read it, the meaning is the same

Okay for arabic script that may be true, but for romanization, it's important to remember that there is no standard way of doing it. Egypt has its own standard, Palestine/Israel have their own standard, Maqreb Countries have a french based standard plus lebanon, Southern Persian Gulf Arab countries have their own, and Iraq and Syria also have their own.
