Dammam was formed in 1923 by Al-Dawasir tribe that migrated from Bahrain to Saudi Arabia after King Abdul Aziz allowed them to settle. the tribe settled in Al-Khobar the location was chosen for its proximity of the island of Bahrain as the clan hoped to head back there soon, but the British rule in the region made it very hard for them to move in every sense ("divide et impera") so they finally realized they had to settle for good in the lands which by that time they already inhabited. However this tiny episode gave a population to Khobar boost as well as close ties with the bigger city of Dammam.
