Yangon - Ethnic Kachin rebels in Myanmar say clashes in the country's north are continuing despite a government promise to cease fire.
An official with the Kachin Independence Army says government forces stopped attacks on Saturday around an army base at Lajayang, just south of the rebel-held town of Laiza.
But the official says army assaults are under way elsewhere on least three other rebel positions in the region.
The official declined to be identified because he is a spokesperson for the rebel group.
Myanmar's military declared on Friday it would stop attacks against rebels around Lajayang starting on Saturday morning because it had achieved its goal of securing an army outpost there.
Fighting between the two sides escalated on Christmas Day when government forces began employing fighter jets and helicopter gunships against the rebels.
