A clash of some sort occurred off the coast of Alaska when two USA fighter jets intercepted two Russian bombers in its worldwide airspace.

According to North American Aerospace Defense Command, US F-22 stealth fighters in worldwide airspace intercepted two Russia's TU-95 "Bear" bombers near Alaska on Friday, as CNN reports.

Encounters between Russian warplanes and US fighter planes have become more frequent in recent years, as Russia seeks to make a display of its military strength. The Russian Sukhoi Su-27 jet came within 20 feet of the American P-8 Poseidon in worldwide airspace.

United States fighters have maintained a safety distance of 100 meters from Russian bombers, according to the Russian armed forces.

NATO naval officials in late 2017 also reported Russian submarines probing underseas data cables in the North Atlantic.
