In this paper, with a new approach, a new fractional Hermite-Hadamard type inequalities for convex functions is obtained by using only the left Riemann-Liouville fractional integral. Also, to have new fractional trapezoid and midpoint type inequalities for the differentiable convex functions, two new equalities are proved. Our results generalize earlier studies. We expect that this study will be lead to the new fractional integration studies for Hermite-Hadamard type inequalities.
