While watching many planes flying to and from the Persian Gulf, I noticed that many of them form a line when heading south beginning in Iraq. So, I'm wondering that with the tremendous amount of planes in the Persian Gulf from Emirates, Qatar, Oman Air, Bahrain, FlyDubai, and Kuwait Airlines, who is responsible for the ATC in the area? Is there some type of joint atc control to regulate the flow of traffic going north and south as there is in Europe?

I was including the ATC coverages not mentioned in that area. North-South from Iran/Iraq was covered. I mentioned the area from eastward over the Gulf Of Oman. Here's the brief copy from google just to confirm where I'm speaking as I flew the trip numerous times in and out of dubai. CC
The Gulf of Oman or Sea of Oman is a strait that connects the Arabian Sea with the Strait of Hormuz, which then runs to the Persian Gulf. It is generally included as a branch of the Persian Gulf, not as an arm of the Arabian Sea.
