Nay Pyi Taw, 17 March— Government troops shelled rebel bases on hills in a village in Laukai on 16 March, followed by heavy fighting, officials said.
The army recaptured some strategic hills, forcing Kokant rebels to make a withdrawal to the north and the northeast.
Following a tipoff in the afternoon,  the government forces carried out a raid on a building in an area near Laukai, seizing narcotic drugs worth around K115 million.
On Tuesday morning, clashes broke out between security forces and rebels in three separate places.
The rebels left three bodies wearing uniforms of Myanmar Nationalities Democratic Alliance Army (MNDAA), two small arms and ammunitions, while the army suffered three deaths, with its four members wounded.—Myawady
