U.S.A.F intercepts 2 Russian Bombers off Alaska Coast

Two Russian TU-95 Bear bomber jets were intercepted in the international airspace off the coast of Alaska(which is controlled by the U.S) by two United States F-22 Raptor fighter aircraft on Monday, the Pentagon confirmed to CNN.

The intercept took place about 100 miles from Kodiak Island after the Russian aircraft flew into the Alaskan Air Defence Identification Zone and there was no trouble faced off by either side.
 
There was no cockpit-to-cockpit radio communication between the US and Russian pilots, the US official told CNN. The incident gains importance since Russia is vehemently opposing U.S. attack on Syria and has even commissioned its biggest nuclear submarine to patrol the region close to Syria.
