The Canadian prime minister said he ordered the mission after talking with President Joe Biden.

An American fighter jet shot down an unidentified object violating Canadian airspace on Saturday, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said.

Trudeau said he ordered the mission after consulting with President Joe Biden.

“I ordered the take down of an unidentified object that violated Canadian airspace,” Trudeau tweeted. “@NORADCommand shot down the object over the Yukon. Canadian and U.S. aircraft were scrambled, and a U.S. F-22 successfully fired at the object.”

“I spoke with President Biden this afternoon. Canadian Forces will now recover and analyze the wreckage of the object. Thank you to NORAD for keeping the watch over North America,” Trudeau added.

After the North American Aerospace Defense Command first discovered the object, Canadian and U.S. jets intercepted it, and a U.S. F-22 — for the third time this week — shot it down.
