Earlier this month Qatari coastguards opened fire on a Bahraini boat that entered Qatari territorial waters. One Bahraini sailor was injured. Although the article in the Gulf News is typically unclear, it appears as if this is an incident of Qataris zealously protecting their fishing rights as opposed to any other security related issues.

It is interesting, however, coming but a few months after a wholly ignored naval spat between Saudi Arabia and Naval forces from Abu Dhabi.
