In this paper, we aim at establishing a generalized fractional integral version of Gr$\ddot{u}$ss type integral inequality by making use of the Gauss hypergeometric function fractional integral operator. Our main result, being of a very general character, is illustrated to specialize to yield numerous interesting fractional integral inequalities including some known results.
