The Sanjak of Zor (Turkish: Deyr-i-Zor sancağı) was a sanjak of the Ottoman Empire. Some of its area was separated from the Baghdad Vilayet, when it was created in 1857. Zor was sometimes mentioned as being part of the Aleppo Vilayet, or of the Syria Vilayet.

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.
