The island of Gonejo covers an area of 0.5 square kilometers (50 hectares) and has been in dispute for some time by some Central American countries. El Salvador promised to occupy it by the Honduran army in 1982 to establish an army unit, but Honduras considers it theirs because Honduras is so close to the sea.
In addition, 10 years later, the International Court of Justice in The Hague distributed several islands in the Gulf of Fonseca, without explicitly mentioning the island of Gonzalez, leading El Salvador to claim ownership of the site, but in 2002 the Hague rejected his claim, granting total control of the territory of Honduras.
