The Rumana subdistrict (Arabic: ناحية الرمانة‎‎) is a subdistrict of Al-Qa'im District, located on the north side of the Euphrates in west Al Anbar Governorate, on the Iraq-Syria border. Its capital is the town of Rumana. The name means pomegranate in Arabic. Rumana is run by an elected sub-district council and submayor.

It has a population of 8,900 inhabitants. All of them are Sunni Muslim Arabs, with the main tribe being Al-Bu Mahhal, in addition to some minor tribes. People earn a living by work in farming, fishing, small business, and employment. There is a concrete bridge linking Rumana with Qaim and Al Ubaidi across the Euphrates.

Rumana subdistrict fell into IS's hands on 16 June 2014.[1]
