The wreckage will be found and analyzed, said the Prime Minister of Canada.

OTTAWA, ON — Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau said On Saturday, on his orders, a US warplane shot down an unidentified object flying high over northern Canada, acting a day after US jets similar actions were taken in Alaska.

Shortly before Truot’s tweet, the North American Aerospace Defense Command said it had detected an object flying at a high altitude over Canada. NORAD did not provide additional information, including when the object was first spotted or what it was.

Spokesman Major Olivier Gallant said Canadian and US military aircraft operating as part of NORAD had been deployed.

On Twitter, Trudeau then announced: “I ordered the downing of an unidentified object that violated Canadian airspace. @NORADCommand downed object over Yukon. Canadian and American planes were shot down, and an American F-22 successfully fired at the target.”

The object was the third known violation of North American airspace in the past two weeks.

In a second tweet, Trudeau said: “I spoke with President Biden this afternoon. Canadian forces will now find and analyze the wreckage of the facility. Thanks to NORAD for watching over North America.”

A suspected Chinese spy balloon flew through Canadian and US airspace for nearly a week before being shot down by US warplanes off South Carolina last Sunday.

US Armed Forces shot down the second object in Alaskan airspace on Friday, although authorities did not provide details on what it was.

Recovery operations continued Saturday near Deadhorse, Alaska, and near South Carolina, according to the US Northern Command.

In a statement, the Northern Command said there were no new details about which object was shot down by a US fighter jet over Alaska. It said the Alaska Command and the Alaska National Guard, along with the FBI and local law enforcement, are conducting the search and recovery.

“Arctic weather conditions, including cold winds, snow and limited daylight, are factors in this operation, and personnel will adjust recovery operations to maintain safety,” the statement said. “Recovery work is underway on the sea ice.”

He added that the Navy was continuing to survey and restore the ocean floor off South Carolina, while the Coast Guard was providing security. Additional debris was hauled out Friday and additional operations will continue, weather permitting, the statement said.
