Darsah (Arabic: درسة‎) is an uninhabited island in the Guardafui Channel. It is part of the Socotra Archipelago of Yemen. Darsah and neighboring Samhah (17 km (11 mi) to the west) are collectively known as "Al Akhawain" (Arabic: الأخوين‎) which means "The Brothers". There is a dispute between Yemen and Somalia's government over the island's sovereignty.[1]
