Pakistan has deployed an entire F-16 fighter jet squadron along the Indian border, according to an unnamed Indian defence official.

Besides, the Rawalpindi-headquartered 10 Corps along with a Special Forces brigade from Sialkot of the Pakistan Army have been deployed along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir.

Defence sources said that the Pakistan Army also began moving part of its troops posted in Balochistan towards the Indian border beginning on 28 Februar.

"We have confirmed reports that PAF's F-16 acquired from both US and Jordan are on high alert all along India-Pak border-from Hyderabad in Sindh to Skardu in Northern Areas. The Pak Army deployment including radars and air defence system along the LoC was strengthened immediately after the February 14 Pulwama attack as they expected Indian retaliation similar to that of the surgical strike,"  Hindustan Times cited an official as saying.

According to India, there have been a total of 467 ceasefire violations in the past two months.
