Al Jawf (Arabic: الجوفAl-Jawf) is a governorate of Yemen. Its capital is Al Hazm.

Al Jawf Governorate borders 'Amran Governorate to the west, Sanaa Governorate to the southwest, Ma'rib Governorate to the south, Hadhramaut Governorate to the east, Saudi Arabia to the northeast, and Saada Governorate to the north.

Since mid-2011, the majority of the governorate is under control of the Houthis.[2][3][4]

As of April 2020, Houthi forces control all of the 12 districts of the Al-jawf province and 95% of the governorate after the 2020 offensive except for Khabb wa ash Sha'af.[5]
