Traditionally Alawis have lived in the Alawite Mountains along the Mediterranean coast of Syria. Latakia and Tartous are the region's principal cities. Today Alawis are also concentrated in the plains around Hama and Homs. Alawis also live in all major cities of Syria. They have been estimated to constitute about 11–12% of Syria's population—2.1 million people.
There are four Alawi confederations—Kalbiyah, Khaiyatin, Haddadin, and Matawirah—each divided into tribes. Alawis are concentrated in the Latakia region of Syria, extending north to Antioch (Antakya), Turkey, and in and around Homs and Hama.Il futuro appartiene all'Islam

Kalbiyah??بَدَأَ الإِسْلاَمُ غَرِيبًا وَسَيَعُودُ كَمَا بَدَأَ غَرِيبًا فَطُوبَى لِلْغُرَبَاءِ

The Kalbiyah (same name but different tribe I imagine) were also rulers of Southern Italy in the past - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kalbids , they were also Shi'a, though not 'Alawi.Il futuro appartiene all'Islam

Mainly Tartous and Latakia"...The eyes are filled with tears and the heart is full of grief but we do not say anything except that which is pleasing to our lord.."
