Some Afshar tribes are also scattered in areas between Kerman and Bandar-e Abbas in southern Iran. today, an ever-increasing number of Afshars have settled down and became farmers.

Mainly Turkish speaking, they were used to put down rebellions of other tribes. They were divided between Iranian Azarbaijan and the Russian or former Soviet Azarbaijan after the occupation of part of our country by the aggressive Russian forces during the Qajar Ka’ab.
