According to a BBC report, Maduro is unharmed after the explosive drones went off while he was giving a speech in the capital Caracas. 

The attack was an attempt on Maduro's life, which injured seven soldiers, Communication Minister Jorgi Rodriguez was quoted as saying. 

Later in a national address, Maduro called the attack an "assassination attempt." 

He blamed the far-right wing factions for the attack, saying the perpetrators were linked to Colombia and the United States.

Several suspects, who Madura said were responsible for the attack, were arrested. 

Meanwhile, a group calling itself Soldiers in T-shirts claimed responsibility for the attack through social media. 

In June 2017, a former police officer, Oscar Perez hijacked a police helicopter and attacked Supreme Court and Interior Ministry premises with hand grenades.
