A fresh terror attack was averted by alert 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 4.30 a.m. They fired towards the sentry post. As the guards retaliated the terrorists were forced to flee, informed sources in the police said.

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

The attack comes close on the heels of another audacious 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 five soldiers and a civilian.
