A fresh terror attack was averted by guards at the entrance of an army camp in Jammu on Tuesday.

Two motorcycle borne militants approached the entry point of the army camp in Domana area around 4.30am. They fired towards the sentry post. As the guards retaliated the militants were forced to flee, informed sources in the police said.

“A search operation is now underway to trace the militants,” they said.

The incident comes close on the heels of another attack at the Sunjuwan army camp in Jammu on Saturday in which a group of three heavily armed Jaish-e-Muhammad (JeM) terrorists entered the camp killing six soldiers and a civilian.
