Javad Fakouri (Persian: جواد فکوری‎, 3 January 1939 – 29 September 1981) was a military official and defense minister of the Islamic Republic of Iran.


Fakouri was commander of the Islamic Republic of Iran Air Force at the rank of colonel.[1] With the consent of Khomeini, then president Abolhasan Bani Sadr appointed him to this post in June 1980.[2][3]

Fakouri was the commander of the IRIAF during the Iran–Iraq War. He also served as defense minister from Spring 1981 to September 1981.[4] Fakouri replaced Mostafa Chamran as defense minister when the latter died in the Iran Iraq war. Mohammad Salimi replaced Fakouri as defense minister in 1981.[4]


Fakouri and other senior military officials including Valiollah Fallahi, Mousa Namjoo were killed in an air crash near Tehran on 29 September 1981.[4][5] When he died he held the rank of Major General.
