BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:30 A.M.) – At least four Russian bombers and two fighters jets were intercepted by the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) off the coast of Alaska.

According to NORAD, the Russian planes were entering the Alaskan Air Defense Identification Zone when they were intercepted, but they remained in international airspace — never entering American or Canadian airspace, according to NORAD.

“Two of the Russian bombers were intercepted by two F-22s, and a second group of bombers with Su-35 fighters was intercepted later by two additional F-22s,” NORAD said.

It said an E-3 “provided overall surveillance.”

“NORAD fighters intercepted Russian bombers+fighters entering Alaskan ADIZ May 20. 2x Tu-95s were intercepted by 2x F-22s; a second group of 2x Tu-95+2x Su-35 was intercepted later by 2 more F-22’s; NORAD E-3 provided overall surveillance. The aircraft remained in int’l airspace,” they tweeted.

The interceptions come amid tensions between Russia and the U.S. The Russian Ministry of Defense reported last week that their air force had intercepted a dozen NATO aircraft along the western border of Russia.
