August 7, 2017: On Sunday, Venezuelan authorities quelled an attack on a military base near the Valenica by soldiers and armed civilians. The attack at a military base led to the deaths of two people.

Government officials and a spokesman for the rebellious soldiers offered conflicting versions of events at the Paramacay military base in Valencia, each side declaring victory.

A video which has circulated on social media showed that more than a dozen men in military uniform announcing an uprising to restore constitutional order following the creation of a pro-government legislative super body on Friday.

The assault highlighted the growing volatility of the OPEC member state after four months of sustained anti-government protests in which some 120 people have been killed.

The opposition has denounced Maduro for dragging Venezuela toward dictatorship and has appealed to the military for help.

Two of the attackers were killed in a firefight with soldiers, Maduro said. Socialist party officials said eight others were arrested, including at least three from the military, while the remainder made off with weapons.
