Haddu, was an ancient kingdom in northern Syria, identified with the modern Tell Malhat ed-Deru (تل مليحة الدور) in Deir ez-Zor Governorate.[1]

The kingdom flourished in the middle of the third millennium BC and controlled the middle Khabur valley.[2] It was ruled by its own monarch who was a vassal of Ebla,[3] and fought against the kingdom of Mari.[4]
