Russian planes detected off Alaska 4 times this week

The Russian bombers did not enter American sovereign or Canadian airspace, Clemons said.

It is unclear if these were the same planes that were intercepted by the F-22s on Monday, but defense officials told CNN that it was a separate violation.

Also on Monday, a third Russian aircraft, an IL-38 maritime patrol plane the American ADIZ.

The first incident happened Monday night, when two nuclear-capabe Tu-95 Bear bombers were intercepted by American F-22 fighter jets about 100 miles off the coast of Kodiak Island.

Moderate Islam garners Pence's praise in Jakarta
The U.S.is also grateful for Australia's demands for China to play an increasingly active and constructive role, Pence said. Pence concluded by reassuring the gathered crowd that the Trump administration had no intention of keeping all Muslims out.

Russian flyovers near foreign airspace have become a commonplace occurrence for USA allies in parts of Eastern Europe since the start of conflict in Ukraine in 2014, when Russian-backed rebels laid claim to the Donbass region.

CNN reported that USA officials called Monday's interception "nothing out of the ordinary".

Pentagon officials said they believed the Russians were testing the U.S. Air Force's response to their bomber flights.

"We go up and visually identify them and fly along side of them", she said.

Russian military jets were spotted flying off the Alaskan coast this week, marking the country's fourth flight in as many days, CNN reported.

Norad spokeswoman Jennifer Stadnyk says the bombers did not violate Canadian or American airspace at any time.

In February, several Russian aircraft buzzed the USS Porter in the Black Sea in an incident the skipper of the American guided missile destroyer called "unsafe". Rather, their frequency is likely "strategic messaging" in the wake of escalating military tensions between Russia and the United States, spurred on by President Donald Trump's recent decision to bomb an airfield in Syria, a Russian ally.

Miller noted that Thursday night's encounters highlighted "the strength of the bi-national relationship of NORAD", a joint American and Canadian command based in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
