Masafi is a village located on the edge of the Hajar Mountains in the United Arab Emirates. It developed along the old unpaved road which ran from Fujairah to Dubai via Sharjah. The village is divided into two parts. The larger belongs to the emirate of Ras Al Khaimah while the smaller belongs to the emirate of Fujairah. Symbolising the historic division between the two emirates is an unfinished building straddling the boundary. This building was a scene of fighting when its ownership was disputed. Eventually, the conflict was ended by the acquisition of the offending construction by the Federal Government.
