No one was hurt in either attack, but it was also confirmed that Adams' grandchildren had been playing in the driveway just moments before.

It's understood that one of the devices caused damage to a car parked in the driveway.

The party took to Twitter to share CCTV footage of the attack at Adams' home.

Monday evening's rally will take place at the site of the old Andersonstown RUC Barracks, where the Falls, Glen and Andersonstown roads converge.

Sinn Féin leader Mary Lou McDonald is set to be the main speaker at the event. Adams and Storey will also be present, according to the party.

“The attacks involving explosive devices on the homes of Gerry Adams and Bobby Storey were cowardly and reprehensible,” West Belfast MLA Pat Sheehan said.

“Sinn Féin will continue to represent this community and pursue our agenda for change, for peace and for a new agreed and united Ireland,” he said.

“[Tonight's] rally is an opportunity for the people of Belfast to come out to show solidarity with the families of Gerry Adams and Bobby Storey and the people of the Bogside in Derry and send a message to those involved in attacks on Republicans and on the community to stop immediately.”

In an official statement released by Sinn Féin, Policing and Justice Spokesperson Gerry Kelly appealed for calm while condemning the "cowardly" attacks by what he has labelled "increasingly desperate and irrelevant groups."

"These were reprehensible and cowardly attacks on the family homes of Gerry Adams and Bobby Storey," Kelly began.

"Grandchildren were in the driveway of Adams' home minutes before the attack.

“I would appeal for calm. These attacks are the desperate acts of increasingly desperate and irrelevant groups.”
