The Jaruud (Khalkha-Mongolian:Жарууд/Jaruud; simplified Chinese: 扎鲁特部; traditional Chinese: 扎魯特部; "The Sixties") are a Southern Mongol subgroup in Jarud Banner, China.

Linguist András Róna-Tas states that whether Jaruud in Inner Mongolia are related to the Khitans' ruling clan Yelü (Chinese: 耶律; Khitan:

𘬜𘭪𘲚𘱪
, spelled ei.ra.ú.ud, pronounced *Yärüd) should be further investigated.[1]
