Yet another terror attack averted in Jammu

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

A search operation is now underway to trace the terrorists

Two motorcycle borne terrorists approached the entry point of the army camp in Domana area around 4.30 am. 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 terrorists,” 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.

Meanwhile, with the recovery of another soldier’s body during searches inside the Sunjuwan army camp, the death toll in the terror attack in Jammu has risen to seven, army said.

The body of the sixth soldier was recovered on Monday evening during the searches, the army said on Tuesday.

With this, the death toll in the terror attack on the army camp that started on Saturday has risen to seven, including six soldiers and a civilian.

Ten others, including six women and children were injured.

A group of heavily armed Jaish-e-Muhammad (JeM) terrorists entered the Sunjuwan army camp on February 10 after hurling grenades and using automatic gunfire.

Four terrorists, all of them Pakistan nationals who managed to enter the Junior Commissioned Officer’s residential quarters, were killed in the anti-terror operation by the security forces.
