Identity of 'creosote' smelling shrub in Morocco

I have recently returned from the Sahara edge near Erfoud in Morocco.

The attached plant/shrub was common in flashes and water courses following the rains in October. It was generally mixing with Euphorbia calyptrata.

It had long stopped flowering, but it was covered with pods. The most noticeable thing was the strong bitumen/creosote smell from the whole plant.

Does anyone know what it is please?
