Diapiric structures have been recorded in Egypt and Syria, in the mobile belt, south and east of the Mediterranean. They are associated with anticlinal areas, mainly of the Syrian Arc System, that trend southwest from Syria (Palmyrean Chain) across Palestine and Northern Sinai to the Western Desert of Egypt.

The main agents governing these structures are those of tectonic origin, predominantly folding. Isostatic forces may have played a secondary role.
