Amediye (kurdisch: Amêdî; arabischالعمادية‎, DMG al-ʿAmādiyya) ist eine kleine Stadt im Gouvernement Dahuk der Autonomen Region Kurdistan im Irak.

Die Stadt liegt 10 km von der türkischen Grenze entfernt. Die Geschichte der Stadt ist sehr alt und reicht bis 3000 v. Chr. zurück. Den Kern der Stadt bildet eine alte Festung, die der Stadt auch den Namen gab. Der alte Name der Festung war Djabal. Nach der Eroberung des Gebietes 1142 durch Imad al-Din Zangi erhielt sie den Namen Imadiye bzw. Amediye. Vom 13. bis zum 19. Jahrhundert war Amediye Sitz des kurdischen Fürstentums Badinan. Die Höhe der Stadt ist 1400 Meter über Meeresspiegel.

Amediye hat 6000 Bürger in fast 1200 Häusern. In der Stadt befindet sich einer der ältesten Moscheen mit einer Minarette, die 30 Meter hoch ist. Früher hatte die Stadt zwei Synagogen, die aber durch Krieg zerstört worden sind. Drei Kirchen sind in den Nachbardörfern zu finden und gehören zu den bedeutungsvollen Kirchen im Nordirak. 37.09194444444443.4880555555567Koordinaten: 37° 6′ N, 43° 29′ O
