ERBIL, Kurdistan Region - Turkey officially announced on Thursday that its military operations against Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) fighters in the Kurdish city of Cizire is over but the curfew will remain in place until further notice.

Turkey’s Interior Minister Efkan Ala announced the end of the military operations against PKK fighters in the Cizre district of the southeastern province of Şırnak.

“Today, operations have just ended... Operational activities in Cizre ended successfully. Search activities will continue from now on. Curfews will also continue for a while as in the case in Silopi,” Turkey's Hurriyet Daily News quoted Efkan Ala as saying.

He added: “We believe that it [the operation] will be completed in Cizre within a few days. In Sur, it may take one or two weeks but there too, 85-90 percent [of the operation] has been completed. In Cizre, the cleaning of ditches and holes and eliminating of mines is 99 percent complete."

Turkey and the PKK reignited fighting last July, ending a two-year old peace process.

kurds should focus on the gain they got in syria and iraq. turkey is not a failed state like syria and iraq.

''Turkey ends military operations in Kurdish city of Cizire'' It should say: ''Turkey ends GENOCIDE operations in Kurdish city of Cizire''

Thank God, but this war never should have been launched. Total war is not the proper response for the murder of 2 police officers. This was completely unjustified and it weakened everyone.

Many times when i say that among the Kurds we have MANY traitors. For example in this situation. HOW DO the Turks KNOW that in Cizre there are no more PKK fighers? I mean somebody KNOWS who is a PKK fighter and who is not. And also which house they attack and which not. We Kurds should THINK and start to kill every one of those traitors without any mercy. If these guys are willing to sell Kurds out, then they should also prepared to die. So brothers we MUST THINK!! and clean our self's of these traitors. I am not only talking about Bakur, but also in Bashur there are among PDK and PUK and what have you people who do not want a independent Kurdistan so they can keep their chair or are working with Turkey and Iran to keep Kurdistan just as it is. Just look at PDK, i am getting more then fed up with their speech about independence. PLAN A DATE AND START A REFERENDUM WITH THE OUTCOME OF REAL independence. Or else, you just like many other Kurdish traitors, should be killed because you are just not willing for a independent Kurdistan. Just in power to deceive Kurds.
