This research is based on an attempt to understand the tribes situation in the tribal environment and society of the Syrian Deir Ezzor, which has been at the forefront of the conflict among the various regional, international and local forces. It also talks about the reality and future of tribes through understanding the tribal situation in Deir Ezzor. Then, it highlights the relationship of the tribes with the various regional, international and local forces, where Deir Ezzor seems to be the crosspoint, through which other events in the Syrian conflict meet, as all parties have been trying to control it.
The tribes and the tribal situation are seen by all powers as a “regressive” force, and so deal with them pragmatically, without trying to understand this situation, leave the theoretical premises before dealing with it, and know the nature of the region, which threatens that the tribal situation might turn into a problem. At the end, the research tries to provide some suggestions and recommendations for the influential powers there.
