The Kurds of Khorasan or Khorassani Kurds (Kurdish: Kurdên Xorasanê, Persian: کردهای خراسان) are Kurds native to northeastern Iran, across the Iran-Turkmenistan border. They inhabit much of North Khorasan province, northern and northwestern parts of Razavi Khorasan province, as well as parts of Golestan province.
They speak a Kurmanji dialect of Kurdish and are mostly adherents of Shia Islam. The population of Khorasani Kurds is about half a million, some 400 thousand of which live in Razavi Khorasan and the rest in North Khorasan.
Kormanj Kurds were moved from north west of Iran after the 1610 war between Kurds and the Safavid Empire. After the Safavids massacred a large number of Soorani and Kurmanj Kurds in the 1610 war, a large number of them were moved by force to Khorasan, in the eastern part of Iran, in order to weaken and divide them.
