NORAD: Russian bombers intercepted off the coast of Alaska

WASHINGTON (SBG) – North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) confirmed on Twitter that Russian bombers and fighter jets were intercepted off the coast of Alaska Monday.

Two Russian Tu-95s bombers were intercepted by two U.S. F-22 fighter jets after the Russian aircraft entered the Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ), or area that serves as a national defense boundary for incoming aircraft intrusions.
