Kurdish rebels in Turkey declared an end to a unilateral cease-fire on Thursday, a day after President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, fresh from a sweeping election victory, pledged to eradicate the militants.

In halting a month-long bid to restore a truce, the Kurdistan Workers’ Party, or PKK, also urged an escalation in the fight for Kurdish autonomy, said a statement published by the Firat news agency.

Fighting never completely stopped during the truce. The PKK had said it would cease its attacks only if Turkey’s military ended its operations against the rebels, which didn’t occur.
