Pibor is a county in Boma State, South Sudan. The county was part of the erstwhile Jonglei state.[1][2]

During the 2011–2012 South Sudan tribal clashes some six to eight thousand "armed raiders" entered the county in late December 2011, ransacking and burning. Three Médecins Sans Frontières clinics, the only source of formal healthcare in Jonglei state, were looted and torched.[3]
