Ali al-Haidari (died January 4, 2005; Arabic: علي الحيدري, Alī al-Ḥaidarī‎) was the governor of the Baghdad Governorate in Iraq. Al-Haidari had narrowly escaped being killed in an assassination attempt in early September 2004 in Baghdad, but he was assassinated by armed gunmen during a second attempt in Baghdad in early 2005.
