I did some research on factional affiliation of al-'Uqaydat tribal confederacy's al-Bu Kamal branch in #DayrAzZawr province before the takeover of #IS and got some surprising results:
1) The most influental local Brigade in the area between al-Bahrah and the Iraqi border clearly appears to have been Liwa' Ahl al-Athar (@Alathr2012).

The Brigade was explicitly an al-'Uqaydat tribal brigade of the #FSA.

2) Another local faction was Liwa' 'Umar al-Mukhtar. It had a few members from the environs of ash-Sha'fah, but its headquarters were located in al-Bu Kamal city and it's support base also was predominantly urban.
