Three terrorists killed after they attacked an army camp in north Kashmir's Kupwara district on 6 October morning, prompting security forces to retaliate, army said.

"At around 5 am, terrorists opened firing on an army camp at Langate in Kupwara district, which was retaliated by the alert jawans," an army official said.

The terrorists shot at two sentry posts of the 30 Rashtriya Rifles camp and ran away. The heavy exchange of fire lasted around half an hour.

No casualties were reported.

"The troops were alert and the attack was foiled," the official said, adding that a search operation was going on.

The attack comes four days after the Baramulla attack where terrorists tried to break into the 46 Rashtriya Rifles camp. In the three hour long gun battle two terrorists and a BSF jawan were killed.
