Jammu: The Army on Friday held Pakistani security
forces responsible for fuelling terrorist activities in the
strife-torn Jammu and Kashmir, saying the recent incidents of
ceasefire violation were aimed at facilitating infiltration of
militants into the state.

"Pakistan security forces are clearly involved in
supporting terrorist activities to create insecurity in
J&K," a senior Army official of 16 Corps said here.
Referring to the three ceasefire violations by Pakistani
troops by shelling rockets, mortar bombs and heavy weaponry
firing on Indian posts along LoC in Poonch, the official said
it was aimed at facilitating the militants sitting on border
to push into Jammu and Kashmir.

"The unprovoked firing from across the border has been an
attempt to facilitate infiltration of terrorists who are
finding it more and more difficult to make an entry through
the LoC," he said, adding the vigil on the border and the
hinterland had been increased as "a precautionary measure".
There have been three ceasefire violations by Pak troops
on Tuesday and Wednesday in Poonch sector, where Pakistan used
heavy volume of mortar fire along with RPGs and machine guns
on Indian forward posts.
