The Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) on Saturday declared a "state of inactivity" after months of attacks in Turkey, pledging to suspend all offensive actions ahead of November polls.
"Heeding calls from Turkey and abroad, our movement has decided on a state of inactivity by our guerillas, unless our people and our guerilla forces are attacked," Kurdistan Communities Union (KCK), an umbrella movement that includes the PKK, said in a statement.
The Kurdish rebels had since late July staged almost daily attacks against members of the security forces, tearing up a two-year-old truce and killing over 140 Turkish police and soldiers.
