The video posted Sunday on the website of the Basque newspaper Gara, shows three masked militants make a statement on the Basque language saying it was ending military operations.
One of the rebels, the reading of a text, ETA said that several months ago decided to disarm to achieve their objectives through a democratic process. It was not immediately clear whether the ceasefire is permanent or temporary.
The Spanish government did not immediately respond to the statement by ETA.
The latest separatist group announced what it called a “permanent ceasefire” in March 2006. But nine months later, ETA claimed responsibility for a powerful car bomb at Madrid airport that killed two people. ETA linked to the bombing of the frustration at the lack of progress in peace talks with the government of Madrid.
ETA is blamed for more than 800 deaths during a four-decade campaign for an independent Basque state in northern Spain and southwestern France.
The European Union and the United States considers a terrorist organization ETA.
