Yohmor or Yohmor al Beqaa (Arabic: يحمر (البقاع الغربي)‎) is a large village in the Beka’a Valley of Lebanon, situated in the Western Beqaa District in the south of the Beqaa Governorate. It lies south of Sohmor.

During the war, the IDF occupied al-Taibe, a village just across the Litani River from Yohmor. It was the site of a bloody battle between the IDF and Hezbollah and cluster munitions were dropped on Yohmor, leaving pock marks in the roads and devastating many buildings.
