In the building of the armed forces threw four grenades, imported from Colombia and made in Israel, one of them exploded.
The attack on the sun is explained simply — the court, observers say, has long stood on the side of Executive power, arguing almost all decisions Maduro. The attack on the interior Ministry less understandable, especially when you consider that Perez rejected the opportunity to explain their motives for revenge. Maybe that’s harsh actions of law enforcement officials against demonstrators in Venezuela in recent months and became the reason why the conspirators decided to strike at the Agency. According to recent reports, during the protests since the beginning of April, 75 people were killed.
The reaction of the sun to the events already announced in the statement of the head of the court of maykel ‘ Moreno.
It cannot be called by another name, in addition to terrorism, such acts will not intimidate the judges, but on the contrary, they will be more rigid in their actions in the framework of the Constitution of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela Meikel Moreno

Also investigated its relationship with the former Minister of internal Affairs, who recently publicly confirmed his contacts with the CIA,” said Villegas.
We are talking about Miguel rodríguez Torres. However, it is already stated that the government was wrong, and Oscar Perez had not worked. Pilot, if Rodriguez Torres, according to him, was Pedro Perez of the intelligence service SEBIN.
The attack on the constituent Assembly failed
Minister Villegas emphasized that the attack will not prevent the planned election of a constituent Assembly that would prepare amendments to the Constitution of the country.
“None of these attacks hurt the national constituent Assembly and electoral process on July 30,” said Villegas. This number is planned to hold the elections of the members of the Assembly.
The idea of convening a meeting causes a sharp rejection of the opposition, which believes that its scheduling must be done through a popular vote. The authorities said that the proposed changes to the basic law will be submitted later to a national referendum.

Predecessor Maduro, Hugo Chavez, at the head of Venezuela survived a coup attempt. The twelfth of April 2002, he was overthrown, however, after two days he regained the power.
The military arrested Chavez faltered, been carrying it from place to place trying to get signatures on a letter of resignation, which could give an appearance of legitimacy to the new authorities. One of Chavez sympathizers officers could pass for a few moments, arrested the President of your mobile phone. Chavez called his wife one of the daughters to pass through them, that he has not filed and will not resign.
The army coup was not supported. In the end, April 14, Chavez returned to the presidency with the support of loyal units and numerous supporters.
Observers find it difficult to say what constitutes the action of the group of Perez now. On the one hand, to warn the authorities of the intention to make a revolution — it’s very strange tactics of the coup. On the other, Maduro challenged, and he, Perez and his followers are not caught. Whether the real force behind the Peres or he acts as a loner, will be known soon.
