Jalu, Jaloo, or Gialo (Arabic: جالو‎) is a town in the Al Wahat District in northeastern Libya in the Jalo oasis. From 2001 to 2007 it was part of Ajdabiya District.[2] Formerly (1983-1987) it was the administrative seat of Jalu District (baladiyah).

The city is located in an oasis in the Libyan desert about 250 kilometers from the Gulf of Sidra. The Awjila Oasis lies about 30 km north-west of Jalu.

The main economic activities in the area are agriculture and many work for companies in the oil sector. The main crops for cultivation are date palms in the oasis, tomatoes and cereals.

Jalu was a subject of the Cyrenaican desert campaign during the Libyan Civil War.
