After the failure of Rugovas Politics there was a gradual radicalization of the Kosovars and a transition to terrorist activities from spring 1996 (sponsor: »Liberation Army for Kosovo«, Ushtria Çlirimtare Kosovës, abbreviation UÇK; founded 1996, dissolved 1999). From March 1998 incidents increased to war-like fighting between the Serbian special police and the KLA, which brought a third of Kosovo under their control by May / June. Then Serbian counter-offensives began. This was followed by the continued flight or expulsion of the Kosovar civilian population (250,000). The conflict turned into an international crisis. After the NATO ultimatum in mid-October 1998, there was a ceasefire and the deployment of an unarmed OSCE observation force (2,000 men; withdrawal by March 20, 1999). the Kosovo Conference in Rambouillet (February 1999) and its follow-up conference in Paris (March 1999; the UÇK signed the Kosovo Agreement) had no consequences. Between March 24 and June 10, 1999, NATO air strikes were carried out on Yugoslav military and infrastructure facilities in order to stop the expulsions and weaken the Serbian military power (without a UN mandate, therefore controversial in NATO countries). As a direct consequence, the Serbian side increased their expulsions extremely; they were accompanied by a now panicked mass exodus of the Kosovars (another 690,000 by May 1999; admission mainly to the neighboring countries Albania, Macedonia, Montenegro and Bosnia and Herzegovina; evacuations also to other countries). After numerous diplomatic efforts to resolve the now open Kosovo conflict, the »G8 Plan« (May 1999), the military-technical agreement of Kumanovo (MTA; 9. 6.) and the UN resolution 1244 (10. 6. 1999) the war is ended. In mid-June 1999 Kosovo was promised extensive autonomy within Serbia under an international protectorate.
The agreed principles (especially withdrawal of the Serbian associations, return of the 1.3 million refugees / displaced persons, establishment of a UN administration and deployment of an armed UN protection force KFOR, from June 12th; no division of Kosovo) could be implemented in summer and autumn 1999. So – after its disarmament from June 1999 – the conversion of the KLA into a civil protection corps (TMK) was completed by September 1999 and at the same time a UN interim administration was set up (Unmik). However, Unmik (abbreviation for “UN Mission Kosovo”) and KFOR were unable to prevent the now targeted expulsion of Serbs and Roma as well as acts of violence by Kosovars. Before and after the entry of NATO troops, around half of the original Serbian population fled Kosovo (around 100,000 refugees). The first free local elections on October 28, 2000 were won by the Democratic League of Kosovo under I. Rugova with an absolute majority (58% of the votes). Rugova saw the election as an important step towards independence for Kosovo. The Democratic Party (PDK) around the former UÇK leader H. Thaci won 27% of the vote, another party that emerged from the UÇK, the “Alliance for the Future of Kosovo” (AAK), got around 8%.
