A total of six Russian aircraft were intercepted by USA fighter jets off the coast of Alaska on Monday, officials with North American Aerospace Defense Command said in a statement.

At some sections of the flight, the Russian strategic bombers were shadowed by US Air Force F-22 fighter jets, the statement said.

In September, two Russian bombers were intercepted by two U.S. F-22 fighter jets near Alaska.

The incident was confirmed in a separate post to social media by the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD), which provided surveillance via an E-3 Sentry airborne early warning and control aircraft.

U.S warplanes intercepted several Russian fighters and bombers crossing into American airspace off Alaska's western coastline late Monday, in the latest show of force by Moscow near the Arctic region.
