Major General Jaafar Mohammed Saad (died 6 December 2015) was a Yemeni politician and soldier.

Saad was a soldier for South Yemen before unification with North Yemen in 1990.[1] Local officials said he fought for South Yemen in the Yemeni Civil War of 1994 and later lived in exile in Egypt and the United Kingdom.[2]

Saad, who held the rank of Major-General, helped government forces defend the city of Aden from Houthis in the Yemeni Civil War of 2015.[3] He was appointed as Governor of Aden Governorate on 9 October 2015.[3]

Saad was killed in a car bombing on his convoy in the Tawahi district of Aden on 6 December 2015. Five of his bodyguards died as well. Islamic State militants claimed responsibility for the attack.[1]
