In 2001, the International Court of Justice resolved a long-standing maritime dispute between Bahrain and Qatar. In addition to establishing an all-purpose maritime boundary, the Judgment also resolved sovereignty disputes over several islands. The Court found the territory of Zubarah, Janan Island, and the low-tide elevation of Fasht ad Dibal to be Qatar’s, while the Hawar Islands and Qit’at Jaradah Island pertained to Bahrain.
