Norad says it identified and intercepted two Russian bombers over the Beaufort Sea on Thursday.

The U.S. and Canadian fighter jets were supported by E-3 Sentry, a KC-135 Stratotanker and a C-130 Tanker.

The ADIZ is airspace that stretches 200 miles from the coastline and is monitored in the interest of national security.

The Russian military said its two strategic nuclear capable bombers had flown in global waters during a 10-hour patrol mission, a part of Ocean Shield exercise, before being escorted by US fighter jets.

U.S. and Canadian fighter jets intercepted two Russian long-range bombers off the coast of Alaska Thursday, according to the North American Aerospace Defense Command, which released images of the encounter.

According to a statement from North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD), the long range nuclear capable Russian bombers remained in worldwide airspace over the Beaufort sea.

Last week Russian military aircraft flew into the ADIZ but were not intercepted. The organization reported that Russian reconnaissance aircraft entered Alaska's identification zone on August 1, and more bombers in May.

The binational command focuses on the defense of both nations doesn't distinguish between the two nations when it comes to monitoring the US and Canada.

"The Russian aircraft remained in worldwide airspace in the Beaufort Sea and at no time did the aircraft enter United States or Canadian sovereign airspace", the statement from Norad said.

Norad uses a layered defence network of radars, satellites and fighter aircraft to identify aircraft and determine the appropriate response.

The NORAD Commander reassured the public that their "top priority is defending Canada and the United States".

Last week, two Russian aircraft entered the Alaskan ADIZ but were not intercepted by USA aircraft. O'Shaughnessy, said in a statement.

On June 4, the Pentagon accused a Russian pilot of making a "high speed pass" about 150 feet directly in front of a Navy P-8A Poseidon maritime surveillance and anti-submarine plane, putting the aircraft's "pilots and crew at risk", according to a Navy statement.

The U.S. military also flies its aircraft off the Russian coast in global airspace.
