Wadi Al-Batin (وادي الباطن) is an intermittent river in Saudi Arabia and Kuwait. It is the lowest and final section of Wadi al-Rummah. It runs 45 miles (75 km) in a northeast-southwest direction through the Al-Dibdibah plain and has been recognized since 1913 as the boundary between western Kuwait and Iraq.
The now non active alluvial fan, extends northeastward from Hafar Al-Batin in Saudi Arabia to cover parts of Kuwait and southwestern Iraq. This alluvial fan may have formed the Al-Dibdibah gravel plain.
At the river bend ʿAuǧat al-Bāṭin (عوجة الباطن) is the tripoint of Saudi-Arabia, Iraq and Kuwait. This was the eastern border point of the Saudi Arabian–Iraqi neutral zone that was divided between the adjoining countries in 1981.
