The truce or cease-fire is in international law not regulated but common term used in contrast to a contractually agreed ceasefire gem. Art. 36 ff. Of the Hague Land Warfare Regulations of 1907 describes the only temporary interruption of fighting. A ceasefire is intended in particular to enable the rescue of the injured and wounded , humanitarian aid for the civilian population or the passage of parliamentarians , but does not necessarily result in a peace treaty . The warring parties can resume hostilities at any time.

To maintain the ceasefire in Kosovo, the Kosovo Force (KFOR) was set up in 1999 .
