Two American F-16 fighter planes "detected, tracked, positively identified and intercepted" four Russian army jets over Alaska, the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) announced, APA reports citing Teletrader.

In what was described as a "routine" incident, the Russian aircraft drifted into international airspace but did not enter American or Canadian sovereign airspace, according to the release.

"This Russian activity in the North American ADIZ [Alaskan Air Defense Identification Zone] occurs regularly and is not seen as a threat," NORAD stated.
