The Palestinian Army (Arabic: الجيش الفلسطيني al-jaysh al-falasṭīnī) is the regular ground force of the Republic of Palestine, one of four branches of the Palestinian Armed Forces. It has existed in various incarnations since its founding in 1947 as the All-Palestine Army, its current form dating from 1979.

The Army is by far the largest service of the armed forces in terms of manpower, and also commands the largest reserve force in the nation, whose personnel may be deployed on active duty during wartime. Due to Palestine's history of frequent resurgent clashes with Israel, the Palestinian Army is one of the most battle-tested modern Arab armies. It is headquartered at Khan el-Ahmar Joint Operations Base, located in Jabal el-Baba County, West Bank. Field Marshal Abdul Rahman Khan has been Chief of Staff of the Army since 2009.
