Jamal Jafaar Mohammed Ali Ebrahimi (Arabic: جمال جعفر محمد علي إبراهيمي, 1954 – 3 January 2020), known by the kunya Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis (Arabic: أبو مهدي المهندس), was an Iraqi-Iranian military commander. He headed the Popular Mobilisation Committee (Al-Hashd Al-Sha'abi). He was the commander of the Kata'ib Hezbollah militia.

He was accused of being a terrorist[1] over his activities in Kuwait in the 1980s. He was sentenced to death in absentia by a court in Kuwait for his involvement in 1983 Kuwait bombings.[2]

Muhandis was on the United States list of designated terrorists.[3]

He was killed by a US airstrike at the Baghdad International Airport on 3 January 2020.[4]
