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.
