The capital was Deir Ez-Zor, a town on the right bank of the Euphrates, which was also the only considerable town of the sanjak. At the beginning of the 20th century, the sanjak had an area of 38,600 square miles (100,000 km2), and an estimated population of 100,000, mostly Arab nomads. The capital itself was just a village before becoming the centre of the sanjak.
