Venezuela is the first country in Latin America to display armed drones.

They say the FARC protesters knew hell that night.

At 3 a.m. on February 8, dissident guerrillas from the 10th and 28th Divisions in Abure State, bordering Colombia, were bombed from the air by the Venezuelan Armed Forces.

A few days later the newspaper El Colombiano reported, citing Colombian armed forces intelligence sources, that the attack was carried out using armed drones.

“This will be an innovation because, if confirmed, Venezuela will become the second country, after the United States, to use real weapons from drones,” said Andre Serbin Pont, director of the Regional Coordinator for Economic and Social Research (CRIES), a network of research centers in Latin America and the Caribbean.
