Infiltration attempts will increase with the melting of snow as per analysis of past militant methods and activities along the LoC, he said, adding that army is well prepared to meet the challenge.

"We are aware of their designs. We are prepared for it. I assure you that we will foil their designs and all attempts," he said.

Regarding the militants operating in hinterlands of the state, the GOC said that nearly 200 militants are operating inside the south of Pir Panchal region.

"They are all terrorists. We are regularly getting inputs of their movement. The backbone of the militancy in south of Pir Panchal has been broken," he said.

The rest will be wiped out in due course of time, the GOC said.

Zero-infiltration has been achieved along the LoC in south of Pir Panchal in Jammu and Kashmir, he said.
