Hajin (Arabic: هَجِيْن‎, Kurdish: Hecîn‎, also spelled Hajeen) is a small city in the Deir ez-Zor region in eastern Syria, south of Deir ez-Zor.

The town was captured by the Syrian Democratic Forces on 14 December 2018 in the Battle of Hajin, after a week and a half of heavy clashes and intense airstrikes by the United States-led Combined Joint Task Force – Operation Inherent Resolve international coalition, and has since been part of the Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria.
